Fee waiver agreed upon by Board 



By Emily Hamer 
Editor 

The Board of Trustees has 
agreed to waive tuition fees of 
about $18,000 for inmates of 
Glades Correctional Institute 
taking courses at Glades 
campus. 

The equivalent of three 



full-time grounds maintainence 
employees will be provided by 
the Institute in exchange for the 
fee waiver. 

The Institute requested the 
exchange because it did not 
receive enough money from the 
state for its rehabilitative 
educational program. 



Approval of the Smith 
Architectural Group, Inc. for 
preliminary drawings with cost 
estimates for a community 
auditorium on the Glades 
campus also was voted. 

It is hoped that interest on a 
donation of $78,000 from the 
Florida Sugar Grower's Cooper- 



ative plus other, private 
donations will amount to 
$100,000. 

The County Commission has 
been informally requested to 
donate $75,000, and in some 
instances the state provides 
double matching funds for joint 
community-college projects. 



A half-million dollar auditor- 
ium can be built if state funds 
are appropriated. 

The trustees were notified of 
federal grants in the amounts of 
$12,000 for the Law Enforce- 
ment Education Program and 
$433,400 for the Basic Educa- 
tional Opportunity Grant Pro- 
gram.

Lt. Governor campaigns 



By Eden White 
Staff Writer 

Realizing that exposure is 
essential at all levels if he is to 
attain his goal of governor, Lt. 
Gov. Jim Williams visited JC 
recently, chatting with adminis- 
trators, faculty members and 
student leaders. 

"This is a most humbling 
experience," said Williams, 
referring to the campaign, 
"knowing if I don't ha people 
all around the state saying nice 
things about me, I know 1 can't 
be governor." 

As far as dilemmas faced by 
the state's community colleges 
are concerned, Williams pointed 
out that, "We don't have too 
many problems in Tallahassee 
about them being treated fairly, 
because every legislator relates 
to a community college in his 



area. 

After a short talk, the first 
questions directed to Williams 
were from President-elect Dr. 
Edward M. Eissey and outgoing 
president Dr. Harold C. Manor. 

Both questions involved 
additional financing for com- 
munity colleges, and the 
inability of the college to raise 
salary levels without additional 
funding. 

Asserting that he had "no 
hesitancy" about looking into 
the matter, Williams said he 
would do so this year. 

When asked about casino 
gambling as a means to increase 
state revenues, Williams said he 
plans to look into gambling in 
New Jersey and Nevada, but 
that while it "might be an 
alternative for Miami Beach" 
it's not for the entire state. 



A grove and cattle rancher 
who has served on the state 
senate for six years and later 
was elected Florida's second 
Lieutenant Governor Williams 
told the gathering how he 
graduated from college at 40 
after an interrupted college 
career. 

"I was driving along and 
happened to hear an announce- 
ment on the radio that it was the 
last day to register for classes at 
Central Florida Community 
College in Ocala, and I decided 
to take a few courses." 

Starting with English and 
accounting, Williams eventually 
became a full-time student, 
finally returning to the 
University of Florida to 
eraduate with a degree in" 
Political Science.

Computer aids processing 
Saves both time and money

JOYCE PAWLEY operating the new Data Processing OpScan 17. 



By MaryJarte Taylor 
Staff Writer 

Data Processing department purchased a 
time-saving as well as money-saving machine, 
OpScan 17 in May. 

Addison Gilbert, Computer Operations 
Manager, stated, "Op-Scan 17 has the ability to 
read computer printed, as well as hand-marked 
and hand-printed documents, ranging in size from 
two by three inches to standard typewriter pages, 
without mechanical adjustment; pages are marked 
with a number two pencil." 

Students from area high schools will take 
placement tests in math reading, and English 
composition before entering JC. Their answers to 
multiple choice and true or false questions will be • 
checked by Op-Scan 17. 

Andrew Meador, Senior Systems Analyst told 
this writer, "If the student answers a question 
marking more than one answer choice, the 
computer will select only the 'darkest' mark. The 
results of these tests, and of certain class 
examinations are then analyzed for each student 
by computer, and a final graph constructed to show 
the percentage of students that answer each 
question correctly or incorrectly, as well as the 
actual distribution of high, low, and median 
scores. 

This will allow instructors to observe the 
difficulty and possible ambiguity of the questions 
he or she includes on a test. Op-Scan has the 
capability of correcting from one to 



one-hundred-sixty questions per test. 

Meador has been programming Op-Scan' since 
its arrival in May, although on an irregular basis. 
He has prepared programs to perform the 
aforementioned tasks as well as for grade 
reporting at the end of each term. "Op-Scan is 
ready to go right now, and will be put into practice 
this term," said Meador, 

The original cost of Op-Scan was $22,680, but 
considerable time-saving is involved. 

Meador goes on to say, "the primary saving will 
be in grade reporting at the end of each term. In 
addition, Op-Scan will virtually eliminate the 
time-consuming task of computer card-key 
punching, for grading purposes. 

Donald W. Cook, Director of Testing, stated in 
an earlier news brief, "I believe firmly, that tests 
should be used as teaching tools." With Op-Scan, 
the instructor can be far more efficient. As Cook 
explains it, "On the old system when an instructor 
gave a test, it used to take a week or so to receive 
the results and relay them to the student resulting 
in a lack of continuity. With the new machine, test 
results should be back to the student by the next 
class meeting," 

Although Meador is presently the only person 
working on Op-Scan 17, eventually, keypunch

Alumni art students display works 



Monday, August 29, 1977 BEACHCOMBER - 3 



By Eden White 
Staff Writer 

The works of two graduate art 
students, both showing that art 
doesn't have to be orderly or 
recognizable to be appreciated, 
are on display in the JC 
Humanities building through 
August 31. 

JC graduate Paul Aho and 
University of Florida graduate 
William F. Miles have a total of 
ten works on display, seven by 
Aho. 

Of the three works done by 
Miles, who is currently working 
on his masters degree from 
Florida State University, the 
most bizarre consists of layered 
paper glued with paint. 

His other two works are a nine 
by twelve foot sheet of 
grid-marked industrial paper, 
divided into three sections and 
darkened with a stick of

Asbestos causes cancer 



By Doug Hughes 

"It seems they were concerned about tiny 
particles trickling down from the ceiling into our 
lungs," said Watson B. Duncan III, chairman of 
communications. He has a classroom and office in 
the auditorium building. 

The concern is justified, for "they" are no less 
an authority than the National Environmental 
Protection Agency (NEPA). 

The tiny particles Duncan was discussing is 
asbestos, which recently has been verified as 
carcinogenic. This material is the major component 
in the ceiling tiles for two buildings at JC, the 
auditorium and science room 26. The science room 
is frequently used as a test and lecture room, 
which means that many persons have been 
exposed to the hazard. 

On the advice of NEPA, maintenance worked 
during spring term II, replacing the asbestos with 



an approved material. 

At the same time the ceiling was also lowered, to 
improve acoustics. This is a welcomed 
improvement for these areas. New lighting 
complet ed the renovation . 

According to Claude Edwards, director of 
maintenance, the cost came to $10,375. This is a 
worthwhile expenditure, providing health 
safeguards and also improving the appearance of 
these rooms. A dazzling white ceiling is a 
considerable improvement over the old, dingy 
tiles. 

"The old ceiling was black, black, black," 
recalls Duncan, dramatically shuddering as he 
remembered, "It even looked cancerous." 

Not only Duncan will enjoy the changes, but 
students in years to come will benefit by these 
improvements. 




EXPANSION at South Campos begins 



PHOTO BY EMILY HAMER 



South campus expands this term 



Patric Heffernan 
Staff Writer 

Starting this term JC South has four permanent 
faculty members and to accommodate them two 
mobile office wings are being prepared. 

The four steady faculty members are Dr. C. 
Errol Hicks, social science; Dr. Peter J. Krieger, 
biology; Dr. Dan L. Terhune, English and Dr. 
Harris D. McGirt, counselor. 
According to James W. Tanner, Coordinator of the 
South Center, space ran out in the Henderson 
University School which houses the JC South 
administrative offices. 

"I made a request for extra faculty members and 
additional space since I'm the one who is on the 
scene," Tanner pointed out. 

In addition to the four regular staffers based at 
the Boca Raton campus, 15 instructors from JC 
Central will be used on an assignment basis and 
very soon an acting registrar is to be appointed. 

"This will mainly be a clerical person who is a ' 
registrar specialist or someone who has specialized 
in that area," Tanner added. 



Over the last few years J C South and Florida 
Atlantic University (FAU) have developed 
cooperative curriculum, in the areas of science, 
engineering, and mathematics, so that students 
may be enrolled at both schools simultaneously, 
through a dual enrollment arrangement. 

Because of this, JC South is unique among JC's 
outlying campuses, in that they offer classes on 
two different time schedules: the JC schedule, in 
which the Fall Term extends from Aug. 17 to Dec. 
15, and the FAU quarter system, which extends 
from Sept. 26 to Dec. 16. 

So a student can take a JC course, for example 
SOC 1200 (SS 101) either on the JC semester or on 
the FAU quarter system. But the evening courses 
are all on the semester. 

People attending the satellite campus can use 
the FAU library, clinic and other facilities without 
having to travel to the main campus. 

Also the Boca campus offers a few non-credit 
workshops. 

A final registration period for the fall quarter 
schedule will be held Sept. 19-23.

painting", layer upon layer of 
acrylic paint originally done on 
glass and gingerly removed and

"Originally I didn't plan to 



frame them but I changed my!

While both artists agree that j 
"this is a strange show for this; 
area," Exhibition Coordinator 
Jim Houser said that, "I feel it's! 
a marvelous opportunity for our j 
incoming students to see work ', 
as sensitive as this. : 

"The unique application of i 
each artist represents a very : 
personal and yet at the same 
time a rather universal ■. 
statement. The apparent sim- j 
plicity is deceptive and I 
represents a very complex point ; 
of view," he added. {

Forensics jeopardized 

By Deborah Sellers 
Staff Writer 

Forensics program may be forced to reduce activities during the 
fall term, according to forensics advisor, John Connolly. 

This cutback would be a result of the'program's advisor receiving 
no release time. 

In the past, the forensics program has produced national winners. 

Last year, JC received first place in four state categories. In 
national competition Trent Steele gave a winning performance in 
Extemporaneous speaking. Sharon Larry Arnold qualified for the 
semi-finals. 

"I would like to keep the program from dying, as I feel we have 
talent within the college," stated Connolly. Connolly went on to say, 
"I am looking for new talent and would like anyone interested to 
contact me." 

Categories involved in this year's program are to include:poetry 
reading, persuasive and extemporaneous speaking, original humor, 
dramatic interpretation and debate, 

In debate, the two categories are individual and team.

Instructors deemed equal 

Repercussions from JC union-management collective bargaining 
appears to include retaliation. The involuntary transfer of Dr. Errol 
Hicks, United Faculty chief negotiator, to the Boca Raton campus 
bears little resemblance to anything else . 

Hicks is an outstanding, competent instructor. His union activities 
make him a marked man. This should not influence administration in 
its treatment of him nor should it threaten his career. He should have 
the right to associate himself with such an organization, whether or 
not his employer approves, without jeopardy. 

If there had been "good faith" bargaining and open lines of 
two-way communication from the start, there would have been peace 
on our campus today. 

Until a plausible explanation is forthcoming, as reason for the 
i Hicks transfer, the conclusion inevitably must be that this is a veiled 
warning — an example — of what can happen to those who are rash 
enough to buck the system . 

If this implication is proven, we shall likely lose other well-qualified 
instructors in the future, who have chosen to speak out on behalf of 
the faculty. 

We sincerely hope this does not happen, JC can use faculty 
members who have courage and speak their minds. 

The old-fashioned image of a meek, longTsuffering teacher content 
with the bottom rung of the ladder is strictly 'passe ' . 

It's high time we treat our instructors as equals! 







Missing jewels? Unreported expensive gifts? Like I said before, I am not a crook! 



Education is a social process . . . education is . . . 



Many have tried to define 
education. Descriptions vary in 
methods and concepts but on 
the final results they all agree. 

No matter how it is said, the 
ideal of education is to 
humanize, polish, develop 
character and the ability to 
relate constructively to one's 
society. 

"Education is a social 
process.. .education is growth... 
education is not preparation for 
life; it is life Itself," John Dewey 
said, affirming that education is 
a lifetime process, always 
improving and upgrading. 

Abraham Lincoln viewed 



education as the most important 
subject that we as a people can 
be engaged in. 

In America we spend more 
money on education than any 
other program except defense, 
with less results per dollar than 
any time in oar history. 

Internal conflict and political 
interference are factors partly 
responsible for the deterioration 
we see in our educational 
system. The public sees little or 
no dedication, concern or effort 
to protect the goals of this 
enormous financial structure. 
Most of the visible activity is 



centered on infighting and 
social experiments. It is said 
that this has caused the 
direction of education to shift 
away from really teaching 
children and young adults 
toward experimentation with 
changes both in academic and 
physical programs. 

Educational foundations are 
so shaky at present, both locally 
and on the national scene, we 
wonder just how much educa- 
ting will be done in '77-78 
terms at JC. 

Faculty morale is crumbling. 
Tensions are no longer 



contained in the mediation 
sessions and behind closed 
doors. They spill out every- 
where, leaving a community 
wondering what is going to 
happen to our schools. 

What growth is occurring is 
not on the main campus. The 
long-drawn-out battle between 
union and management is 
leaving rancor and bitterness 
that we will be coping with for a 
long time to come. 

Further, it Is draining a great 
deal of money that should 



rightfully be spent on student 
education. That money can only 
come from student education, as 
other costs of operating the 
college arc more or less fixed 
ones. 

How can we learn to relate 
constructively to our society 
when everything we sec here is 
contrary to this ideal? 

When are we going to get 
back to the real business of JC 
— to provide the best possible 
education for each student who 
attends?

SOC 1200 (SS 101) either on the JC semester or on 
the FAU quarter system. But the evening courses 
are all on the semester. 

People attending the satellite campus can use 
the FAU library, clinic and other facilities without 
having to travel to the main campus. 

Also the Boca campus offers a few non-credit 
workshops. 

A final registration period for the fall quarter 
schedule will be held Sept. 19-23.

Forensics jeopardized 

By Deborah Sellers 
Staff Writer 

Forensics program may be forced to reduce activities during the 
fall term , according to forensics advisor, John Connolly. 

This cutback would be a result of the'program's advisor receiving 
no release time. 

In the past, the forensics program has produced national winners 

Last year, JC received first place in four state categories In 
national competition Trent Steele gave a winning performance in 
Extemporaneous speaking. Sharon Larry Arnold qualified for the 
semi-finals. 

"I would like to keep the program from dying, as I feel we have 
talent within the college," stated Connolly. Connolly went on to sav 
"I am looking for new talent and would like anyone interested to 
contact me." 

Categories involved in this year's program are to include-poetrv 
reading, persuasive and extemporaneous speaking, original humor 
dramatic interpretation and debate. ' 

In debate, the two categories are individual and team.

Instructors deemedequai 

Repercussions from JC union-management collective bargaining 
appears to include retaliation. The involuntary transfer of Dr. Errol 
Hicks, United Faculty chief negotiator, to the Boca Raton campus 
bears little resemblance to anything else. 

Hicks is an outstanding, competent instructor. His union activities 
make him a marked man. This should not influence administration in 
its treatment of him nor should it threaten his career. He should have 
the right to associate himself with such an organization, whether or 
not his employer approves, without jeopardy. 

If there had been "good faith" bargaining and open lines of 
two-way communication from the start, there would have been peace 
on our campus today. 

Until a plausible explanation is forthcoming, as reason for the 
Hicks transfer, the conclusion inevitably must be that this is a veiled 
warning — an example — of what can happen to those who are rash 
enough to buck the system. 

If this implication is proven, we shall likely lose other well-qualified 
instructors in the future, who have chosen to speak out on behalf of 
the faculty. 

We sincerely hope this does not happen. JC can use faculty 
members who have courage and speak their minds. 

The old-fashioned image of a meek, long-suffering teacher content 
with the bottom rung of the ladder is strictly 'passe' . 

It's high time we treat our instructors as equals 1 




Education is a social process . . . education is 



Many have tried to define 
education. Descriptions vary in 
methods and concepts but on 
the final results they all agree. 

No matter how it is said, the 
ideal of education is to 
humanize, polish, develop 
character and the ability to 
relate constructively to one's 
society. 

"Education is a social 
process.. .education is growth... 
education is not preparation for 
life? it is life itself," John Dewey 
said, affirming that education is 
a lifetime process, always 
improving and upgrading. 

Abraham Lincoln viewed 



education as the most important 
subject that we as a people can 
be engaged in. 

In America we spend more 
money on education than any 
other program except defense, 
with less results per dollar than 
any time in our history. 

Internal conflict and political 
interference are factors partly 
responsible for the deterioration 
we see in our educational 
system. The public sees little or 
no dedication, concern or effort 
to protect the goals of this 
enormous financial structure. 
Most of the visible activity is 



centered on infighting and 
social experiments. It is said 
that this has caused the 
direction of education to shift 
away from really teaching 
children and young adults 
toward experimentation with 
changes both in academic and 
physical programs. 

Educational foundations are 
so shaky at present, both locally 
and on the national scene, we 
wonder just how much educa- 
ting will be done in 77-78 
terms at JC. 

Faculty morale is crumbling. 
Tensions are no longer 



contained in the mediation 
sessions and behind closed 
doors. They spill out every- 
where, leaving a community 
wondering what is going to 
happen to our schools. 

What growth is occurring is 
not on the main campus. The 
long-drawn-out battle between 
union and management is 
leaving rancor and bitterness 
that we will be coping with for a 
long time to come. 

Further, It is draining a great 
deal of money that should 



rightfully be spent on student 
education. That money can only 
come from student education, as 
other costs of operating the 
college are more or less fixed 
ones. 

How can we learn to relate 
constructively to our society 
when everything we see here is 
contrary to this ideal? 

When arc we going to get 
back to the real business of JC 
— to provide the best possible 
education for each student who 
attends?

TV industry must bear a large 
share of the blame for filling our 
home screens with mental junk. 
The endless format of mayhem 
and murder introduces and 
reinforces a disregard for 
human life. Cruelty and killing 
is commonplace "entertain- 



ment." 

TV introduces fashions, 
consumer products and every- 
thing else that Madison Avenue 
can promote. These shape and 
mold the values of American 
consumers. 

Dull, repetitious comedy 
routines and senseless game 
shows with hysterical partici- 
pants offer little relief from the 
grim and gory. We become so 
saturated with the terrible and

Rock and roll king 
dominated the 5u's 



Monday, August 29/1977 BEACHCOMBER - 5 



By Gunda Caldwell 
Associate Editor 

No royal monarch ever 
received warmer acclaim and 
fanatical adoration from his 
public than did our own king, 
Elvis Presley. 

He arrived on the entertain- 
ment scene at a time when 
youth was waiting for something 
new and exciting. His earthy 
sexiness and unaffected aban- 
donment to a new beat struck a 
responsive chord in his listeners 
that flourished into a lifetime 
love affair with his thousands of 
fans. 

Yet. his short life is a 
poignant study of contrasts. 
Presley came from humble 
beginnings and died an 
uncrowned king of show 
business. 

The two-room sharecropper's 
hut where he was born became a 
shrine to his devotees. 

Death took him from a million 
dollar mansion, in this white- 
pillared, red-carpeted luxurious 
residence he spent his lonely, 
final years, seldom leaving 
except for his concert tours. 

Fans waited endlessly outside 
the gates in hopes of catching a 
glimpse of this fantastic and 
isolated showman. One fan even 
tried to mail herself to him, in 
an effort to make contact. 

As a truck driver, he cut a 
record that started him on the 
way to the giddy heights of 
stardom. 

His recent death evoked a 
monumental grief that surpass- 
ed anything ever before 
extended to an entertainment 
figure. He made a permanent 
place for himself in music when 
he brought out a new, rocking 
upbeat style that influenced 
every group that followed him, 
including the Beatles. 

Women adored him and men 
tried to imitate him. The 
charisma endured, even past 
death. The blind love of his fans 
created illusions about his 
appearance in spite of the 
obvious physical deterioration. 
He will always remain young 
and handsome no matter what 
he weighed or how he looked. 

Concerts invariably sold out 
before Presley arrived, enabling 
scalpers to reap high profits 
from fans who would pay 
anything to get in. A lone hair 
«ock in a bar of soap he had 
ised or a doth he had wiped his 
face on became treasured 
souvenirs. 

He was surrounded by 
devoted fans, yet he was lonely 
and atone, a recluse in his 

home. 

Fame and fortune could not 

insulate him from life's 



tragedies. His beloved mother 
died prematurely, oddly enough 
at the age Presley, too, would 
die. His marriage failed. 
Popularity and fortune could not 
provide health, happiness or 
survival. He died, alone, too 
soon. 

His gravesite was covered 
with thousands of floral 
arrangements, tributes to the 
fallen star, in accordance with 
his wish, every mourner who 
desired was given a flower from 
the displays as a final, loving, 
gesture from a great performer 
to those who had made him a 
success. 

The "King" was a generous, 
kind human, being who 
experienced in his short life 
abject poverty, struggle, suc- 
cess, love, adulation, suffering 
and losses. 

He was another Horatio 
Alger, rising from rock bottom 
to great heights without 
deception, fraud, cheating or 
dishonesty. Intoxicating success 
and applause left him unchan- 
ged. His feet stayed on the 
ground. 

Presley records will preserve 
the beat of the jailhouse rock, 
the mumbled hound dog ditty 
and the gentle, moving "Love 
Me Tender." 



He was, indeed, the king of 
rock and roll. And now the king 
is dead. Long live the king! 




Florida's finite water supply rapidly diminishing 



Venture 



By Kathy Cavanaugh 
Staff Writer 

Imagine yourself on a hot, humid day 
^in South Florida. You have just finished 
playing a rigorous game of tennis. Nearly 
dehydrated, your body yearns for a drink 
of cold, fresh water. 

But to your dismay, you discover that 
the tap is dry. That familiar trickle of 
clear water is not flowing from the faucet. 

Yes indeed, that sounds unrealistic, 
furturistic and very unlikely. However, it 
could very well become a reality in the 
NEAR future. The tap COULD run dry 
^because South Florida's water supply is 
in jeopardy. 

The 1971 Governor's Conference on 
Water Management in South Florida 
reported, "There is a water crisis in 
South Florida today." 

South Florida has one of the fastest 
growing populations in the country. In 
1973, an estimated 6,000 newcomers 
moved into the State each week according 
to the Florida Conservation Foundation 
Inc.. 

South Florida's population is not 
expected to decline. Instead, it is 
expected to skyrocket from 7.8 million 
(1973) to 11.1 million by 1990 — a 475 
percent increase between 1950 - 1990. 
Over 90 percent of this growth is 
attributed to in-migration, says the 
University of Florida Bureau of Business 
and Economic Resources. 
O 

Developments will be built to house the 
newcomers. The housing projects will 
have to be wedged between the Atlantic 
Ocean (the eastern barrier of the coastal 
zone) and the wildlife conservation and 
water resource areas which form the 
western barrier of the coastal zone. 

Development of the area will cause a 

•■continuous urban strip extending 

approximately 150 miles north-south 



down the east coast of South Florida, 
That continuous strip of buildings, 
people, pavement and garbage land-fills 
will pollute and partially deplete the 
aquifers and other fresh water resources 
that play a major role in Palm Beach, 
Dade and Broward Counties' water 
supplies. 

The Biscayne Aquifer, a shallow 
underground reservoir consisting of 
cavernous limestone beds, extends from 
southern Palm Beach County down 
through southern Dade County and 40 
miles west to the Everglades, It serves as 
the principal source of fresh water for 
Dade and Broward Counties. However, 
the ever present threat of salt water 
intrusion exists, 

If fresh water levels in the aquifer 
decline to a critically low level because of 
drought and/or overwhelming demand, 
then sea water will invade the aquifer and 
render the blackish water useless for all 
of man's needs. 

A summary report from the U.S. 
Department of the Interior states, "If 
growth continues with no implementation 
of water practices beyond those now in 
operation, water levels will continue to 
decline gradually throughout southeast 
Florida, attended by a corresponding 
incremental increase in the number of 
coastal areas affected by seawater 
intrusion..." 

Palm Beach County derives only a 
small amount of its potable water from 
the Biscayne aquifer because Lake 
Okeechobee is Palm Beach's major fresh 
water source. However, Lake Okeechobee 
is also a threatened reservoir. According 
to the Department of Environmental 
Regulation, the channelization of the 
Kissimmee River north of Lake 
Okeechobee has caused the Lake to begin 
eutrophicating (dying). Increased 
amounts of nutrients and pollutants from 
farmland adjacent to the River are 
flowing south into the lake causing algae 




to grow at an abnormally rapid rate. The 
algae then begins depleting the lake of it's 
oxygen supply. 

Thus, Lake Okeechobee's water would 
not be fit to serve as a source of potable 
water, (Note: The rate of eutrophication 
is slow, but some environmentalists 
estimate that the Lake could be dead in as 
little as twenty years!) 

The demand for water pumped from 
Lake Okeechobee in West Palm Beach 



rose from approximately 14 million 
gallons in 1960 (on a peak day) to 29 
million gallons in 1970 (South Florida 
Water Management District). Another 
doubling will probably have occurred by 
1980, 

Those figures are an indication of how 
fast Florida is growing. Obviously, 
something must be done to continue 
meeting the increasing demand for fresh 
water!

One of the big problems ^-ith 
being young in America is that 
you become the victim of an 
unreasonable stereotype which 
states than anyone under 20 is a 
sex-crazed, drug addicted threat 
to the Constitution. 



This vision of youth is 
perpetrated by such publica- 
tions as "Time Magazine", 
"The Washington Post" and 
the monthly magazine from the 
D.A.R. This may strike one as 
strange when it is considered 
that a large portion of each staff 
is made of what is commonly 
referred to as "Children of the 
60's," former sex-crazed, drug 
addicted threats to the Consti- 
tution, who found, after tfrey 
graduated from college, that 
anarchy and civil disobedience 
are not lucrative business 
ventures. 



Donning tie and coat, they 
cropped their ridiculously long 
hair and knocked on the doors, of 
every tabloid and daily in the 
nation, hellbent on a careet in 
hard, factual, investigative 
journalism. And they got them . 

Of course, these stereotypes 
are greatly exaggerated. Cer- 
tainly, there lurks in the ghettos 
and tenements" children of 
America's middleclass, who rob 
and pillage in a drug induced 
stupor, mumbling quotes from ; 
Mao's Little Red Book on the 
imminent fall of the Bureaucra- 
cy and the glorious rise ofaghe 
Proletariat, all while frantically 
searching their pockets for a 
match to light their last joint. 



But this type of individual is a 
member of a small minority. 
They no longer populate Ivy 
^League colleges by the tens of 
thousands, chanting and giving 
university presidents head- 
aches. Students today are more 
civil, less likely to indulge in just 
any new hallucinagenics that hit 
the market. 



They find their emotional 
'Tieeds filled in the classroom, 
majoring in such future markets 
as nuclear physics and environ- 
mental control and growth. 
They've found a new drug to 
play around with - money, 
prestige and desperate thoughts 
of rising from middle to upper 
class before the gang at work 
finds out. 



Let us take a look at some of 
these misconceptions and clear 
up some rumors. 



1. All kids today have long 
hair. This idea is lingering from 
the fretful 60's, where everyone 
and their grandfather spent 
months growing long locks to 
Ihake in authority's red face. 
Today, kids find such unruly 
hair a nuisance and difficult to 
dance with, and keep it neatly 
trimmed in the latest Dick Clark 
fashion. Occasionally one may 
find a throw back who is yet to 
hear about this furry reversal. 



*2. All kids, particularly males, 
are over sexed. This notion, too, 
is left over from the previous 
decade. While it is true that the 



advent of The Pill has reduced 
the joy of sex (no plug) to almost 
animal basics, this moral 
decline is taking a gradual 
U-turn. Halos are even in, 
according to "Women's Wear 
Daily." 

3. All young people under 25 
ingest bizarre drugs into their 
bodies at regular Intervals , 
giving them the mental 
capabilities of a potato. This 
rumor has a slight basis of truth, 
though the definition of weird 
hallucinogenics has yet to be 
determined. 



The use of such substances as 
LSD, STP, THC, AFL and CIO 
are very limited, ranking on the 
"Kicks Scale" with sniffing 
sterno and setting one's self on 
fire for the fun of it. 



Marijuana is still popular 
among high school students and 
president's children, but cocain 
has risen in popularity among 
the beautiful people and closet 
hippies. Black market coke has 
made accessibility easy, but 
hospitals have reported several 
accidents from people snorting 
confectioners' sugar into their 
noses. 

As you can plainly see, 
America's youth is a lot better 
than people give them credit 
for. After all, it was former 
youths who invented such useful 
items as the neutron bomb... 



Wait a minute. Let's think 
about this....

E.M.T.'s: The angels of mercy 



By Robert McClory 
Guest Writer 

Sounds in the night travel far, 
Siren screams cut the night air 
for thousands of yards. Those 
safe at home wonder the siren's 
destination. Those riding be- 
neath the bleak sound wonder 
what the scene is like. 

These riders, who many times 
are nameless to the victim, are 
called, in short, E.M.T. 
(Emergency Medical Technician) 

On the spot medical aid has 
become a specialized art. More 
than first aid, E.M.T.'s can give 
life saving drugs without a 
doctor's order. 

When a situation has 
developed too intense for an 



E.M.T., a doctor can be 
contacted by way of C.B. radio. 
Becoming the eyes and ears for 
the doctor, the doctor can then 
tell what is the next best effort 
in crucial moments. Thus the 
mobile angel of mercy is the 
hands of the doctor. 

Many long hours of school, 
r even longer hours working in 
hospital emergency rooms and 
intensive care units, are spent 
before an applicant can wear the 
shoulder patch and pin of an 
E.M.T. 

Emergency medicine at the 
scene of an automobile accident 
is not for those with faint hearts. 
Drownings, snake-bites, heart- 
attacks, burns and small cuts 
add to the list of procedures of 
an experienced E.M.T. 



Those who pass wear the 
patch with pride. Many patch 
wearers already have other 
marks of distinct pride. Many 
police and almost all firemen are 
E.M.T.'s. Those who are not are 
signed to take the year long 
class. 

There are three levels of 
training for an E.M.T. Each 
level gives more freedom to the 
individual at the scene to do 
what he thinks is right. Social- 
ized medicine has become a 
reality. 

If you ever become a hapless 
soul with the sound growing 
loud in the night, rest assured 
those riding to your aid are your 
best first line of defense against 
death or permanent injury.

Cook elected director 



By Sonny Nyman 

Staff Writer 

Donald W. Cook, Director of Testing, has been 
elected as one of eight Directors to the Florida 
District Exchange Club. 

The state Exchange Convention, held in May, 
appointed Cook to the Board after one year's 
service as president of the South West Palm Beach 
Exchange Club. There are eight districts in the 
state and there are nine divisions in Cook's 
district. 

Each year, the Exchange, the only 
American-oriented community ervice club in the 
U.S., sponsors programs in crime prevention, the 
Book of Golden Deeds award, the Freedom Shrine, 
and other public services. Their major program is 
with the high schools as they sponsor the Jr. 
Exchange and Exchangettes, the National Speech 
Contest, and Youth of the Month, for which a state 
scholarship is given. 

Cook's responsibilities as a new Director 
will be to act as a liaspn or resource between the 
nine clubs in his division and the state. He'll be 
assisting with club operation, new club forming, 



and membership, as well as conducting leadership 
conferences during the year. Cook will also be 
"briefing" the high school Exchange clubs at the 
beginning of each school year to start off the 
season on the right foot . 

"We're mainly concerned with young people," 
Cook explains, "...to get them interested in the 
community and constructive activities and to give 
them an opportunity for leadership training... to 
give them th e joy of giving of themselves . " 

As past president of the South WPB Exchange, 
Cook received the Outstanding Club President 
award from the National Exchange Club and led 
his club in acheiving Best Club, Best Scrapbook 
awards and for state, the Membership Building 
award for 1973-74. He also served as a 
commissioner of the South Lake Worth Inlet 
District since his appointment by Gov. Reubin 
Askew in 1973. He was later elected to the office in 
1974. 

The Exchange Club is to sponsor a "Crying 
Towel Program" where athletic coaches from 
around the area will share their gripes and boasts 
to everyone in a presumably hilarious evening, 
Sept. 6 at 8 p.m.

Darkroom complete 

Installation of a darkroom in the Student Publications Building has 
been completed in time for the first fall term issue of the 
Beachcomber. 

Costs for building it were paid out of the Beachcomber budget. 
Construction cost the Beachcomber $400 and equipment ran $300. 

JC construction personnel remodeled a closet to house the 
equipment. 

"I conferred with JC construction employes as to the darkroom 
floor plan, and although it's small, it is efficient," stated Emily 
Hamer, Beachcomber editor. 

Prior to completion of the Beachcomber . darkroom, the

Phi Theta Kappa of JC North 
announced last Tuesday that 
November 1, 1977 will be the 
date when it will form its own 
chapter. 

Presently, PTK North is 
recognized as Delta Omicron, 



the main campus chapter. 
However, PTK North holds 
separate meetings apart from 
the main campus. 

Frank Barton, a North 
campus instructor, is to be the 
sponsor of the new chapter. He 
is currently assisting PTK 
members with their activities. 

Dan Hendrix, sponsor for 



Delta Omicron, said he is glad 
that the North campus will be 
forming its own chapter because 
it will enable an additional FAU 
scholarship to be given to a PTK 
member. 

Plans for a formal ceremony 
are scheduled to be held at the 
West Palm Beach Auditorium 
Sunday, November 6. 



Duncan reviews a best seller 



"The much talked about best seller by Anne 
Edwards is a definitive biography, 'Vivien 
Leigh'," stated Watson B. Duncan III, Chairman 
of the Communications Department. 

The book review presented by Duncan at the 
Lake Worth Playhouse, received an enthusiastic 
crowd. 

Vivien Leigh, who portrayed Scarlet O'Hara in 



"Gone With The Wind" was married to Sir 
Lawrence Olivier , remembered Duncan. 

All proceeds of the book review, part of the 
area-wide Royal Palm Festival went to Lake Worth 
High School Band for new uniforms. 

"The reviewer donated his time, and the Lake 
Worth Playhouse donated the use of its theatre for 
the review," stated coordinator, Bridie Schroeder. 



Adeadlock is declared 



By Charlie Loveday 
Editor 

A deadlock was declared by the United 
Faculty of JC at the 18th bargaining 
session between the union and the 
administration representatives Monday, 
Aug. 22. 

This decision was reached by the union 
shortly after the administration's 
representatives rejected a final union 
comprehensive proposal. A 51,000 raise 
was requested for each instructor and ' 
reduction in working hours from 35 to 30 
hours per week. 

Administrative negotiators had no 
objection to the deadlock declaration. * 
They quickly agreed that their differences 
could not be settled by a Federal 
mediator. Both sides agreed that a 



special master should be appointed. 

Dennis Alber, vice president of the 
union's executive committee, explained 
that the next step is to inform the Public 
Employees Relations Committee (PEHC) 
that an impasse has been reached in the 
negotiations. 

PERC will then submit a list of five 
names from which the two sides must 
choose a special master, the special 
master will make recommendations. 

"The recommendations that the 
special master will make are not binding 
to either of the parties," Alber said. 

Alber explained that if no decision was 
reached with the aid of the special 
masters it would be referred to a 
legislative body. This would be the 
District Board of Trustees. ;

Eleven Pacers lead Post 1 2 to regional finals 



By Paul Jenkins 
Staff Writer 

West Palm Beach's American 
Legion baseball team, Post 12, 
left at 8 a.m. Tuesday from Palm 
Beach International Airport for 
the regional finals in South 



Carolina having won the state 
championship. 

The last time Post 12 
represented Florida was in 1972 
when they finished third 
nationally. Post 12 is the only 
legion, team in Palm Beach 



County to win the state 
championship, which they have 
won ten times — more than any 
other team in the state. 

An important factor in the 
success of the West Palm Beach 
team is head coach Bob Shaw, a 




former major leaguer with the 
Chicago White Sox and the San 
Francisco Giants. Shaw is 
helped by two enthusiastic 
assistants. Ken Johnson, former 
pitcher of the Houston Astros 
and Milwaukee Braves, and 
Dusty Rhodes, JC's head 
baseball coach. 

Johnson is in the record books 
as having pitched a no-hitter 
while losing the game. 

When Coach Rhodes, who 
played on the 1964 Post 12 
teams, sees Florida's 1977 
Legion champions play, he ■ 
could be forgiven for thinking 
that he is at a JC game since 
there are eight JC players on the 
team plus three who are going 
to try out for the team. 

Of the eight JC players on the 
Post 12, two are returning from 
last years team. They are; Scott 
Benedict, catcher; and Ted 
Atkins, pitcher. The six new 
players are Bob Garris and 



Lealand Wright, pitchers; Roy 
Alverez, Craig Gero, Keith 
Parenteau, infielders; and Jim 
Wilkinson, outfield. The three 
hopefuls are Tom Price, pitcher; 
Jim Hoskins and David May, 
outfield. 



Coach Rhodes likes his JC 
players to play on American 
Legion teams saying "playing in 
this regional tournament will be 
great experience for them." An 
added incentive will be the 
presence of scouts from every 
major league team. 

Rhodes hopes that this year's 
Pacer team will be as successful 
as Florida's champion American 
Legion team, Post 12.

Rhodes makes baseball a winner 



By Jim Goodman 
Sports Editor 

Three years ago, Dusty 
Rhodes took over the baseball 
program and turned it around. 

The Pacer baseball team, 
which had never been above the 
.500 mark prior to Rhodes, has 
now experienced three winning 
seasons under his leadership. 

Rhodes came to JC four years 
ago as an assistant coach. At the 
time, .he was the Athletic 
Director of Conniston Jr. High. 
He received a dollar check for 
his coaching duties that. year, 
which he says he still has , 
framed at his house. 

Rhodes took over the head 
coaching duties the next year 
and his team produced a fine 
28-13 record. The next season 
was not quite as successful, but 
the team still managed a 23-18 
record. 

Last year, Rhodes decided to 
leave Conniston Jr. High to 
become a P.E. instructor here at 
JC. 

"I wanted to get into the 
college coaching full time," 
Rhodes said. "I figured the best 
way to do it was to become an 
instructor here." 

The team jumped off to a 
great start and was 28-8 at one 
time. They hit a slump though, 
and lost their last 10 out of 11 
games to finish at 29-18. 

"We just ran. out of gas," 
Rhodes commented. 

Rhodes first became involved 
with Pacer baseball in 1965 as a 
player. It was the first year that 
JC fielded a baseball team, and 



sporfs 



column 



as can be expected, the team 
had to take some lumps. 

"We used to get our brains 
kicked in," Rhodes said. 

-Rhodes was an infielder on 
that year's team which had only 
17 players. Six dropped out at 
mid-term for academic reasons 
leaving only 11 players on the 
roster. 

"Because of the lack of 
players, the coach decided to 
use me as a pitcher," Rhodes 
-said. 

"I still remember my first 
game as a pitcher. It was 
against Dade North. We lost 
16-1." 

Rhodes' pitching career may 
not have been spectacular, but 
his coaching success for the 
Pacers has been a different 
story. Much of his success has 
come from his ability to sign top 
area players. 

"I knew many of the players 
when they were in junior high 
and that's enabled me to get a 
few of them," Rhodes explain- 
ed. 

Rhodes credits most of the 
recruiting success to the 
formation of the PBJC Baseball 
Foundation and the support that 
the local community has given. 

"There's a goldmine of talent 
in this area and I've been lucky 
to be able to get as many players 
from here as I have," Rhodes 
said. 



Rhodes has built much of the 
community support by schedul- 
ing games in the Municipal 
Stadium against high caliber 

opponents. The University of 
Miami, Florida Southern, and 
Florida International University 
were some of the teams that the 
Pacers played at the Municipal 
Stadium last season. The games 
drew enough crowds to produce 
$1,000 profit for the baseball 
foundation. cont. pg. 8. 



Knowles stays on 

By Patrick Heffernan 
Staff Writer 

Coach Bobbie Knowles, who resigned as head of women's 
volleyball last February, is to continue coaching that sport, it was 
decided by President Manor. 

Knowles received a letter from Dr. Paul Graham, Vice-Pres. 
Academic Affairs, after Spring I asking that she continue to coach 
volleyball. 

"It was an involuntary decision. It was either I stay on as 
volleyball coach or leave and look for a job elsewhere," said 
Knowles. 

As for the position of Softball coach from which she resigned ,^he 
still has no idea if she or anybody else will be its coach. Also, she 
hasn't seen the budget for the two sports. 

Knowles sent an official letter of resignation to Athletic Director 
Dr. Howard Reynolds Feb. 16, who approved her resignation as 
coach. She cited several reasons for her resignation, such as 
inadequate release time, poor field maintenance, too many classes, 
and too little practice time. 

Referring to the complaints she said, "It's no different this year 
than last year except practice time should be better this year." But 
knowles still teaches seven classes, which was one of her complaints 
— how can you teach seven classes and still coach? 

As far as the players go, she really doesn't have much of an idea 
who they will be getting. She didn't do any recruiting. 

"The Board of Trustees has not yet approved Volleyball 
Scholarships," Knowles said. 

The volleyball season opens Sept. 22 at 2 p.m., playing 
Miami-Dade South-away.

Staff Write* 

The lineup for intramural

tournament, three on three half 
court tournament, foul shooting 
and co-ed basketball, bowling,

all students can participate in 
the activities for free. 



Rhodes 



Rhodes is very optimistic 
about the coming season, after 
having his first recruiting 
season since his start at JC. 



"We've had a lot of talent on 
this team," Rhodes comment- 
ed. "If we develop, as well as I 
think we should, then we'll be a

possibly the state." 

"It could be our best team," 
Rhodes added.

retire."

Canoeing, officer elections 
on Science Club agenda 



By Georgia Wink 
Staff Writer 

Canoeing, tubing and hiking were among 
activities planned during the Science Club meeting 
held Aug. 31. 

The annual canoe run is planned for Sept. 17. 
Anyone interested is asked to place his name on 
the' list located in Glen Marstellar's office. No 
names will be accepted after Thursday, September 
15. 

Students wishing to make the canoe run are to 
meet at either the main campus north parking lot 
or at the 45th street campus at 7:5fra.m. A car pool 
will be formed for transportation to the run site. 

Suggested equipment includes bathing suits, 
mosquito repellent, sunshades for the fair skinned 
and a lunch. 

Canoe owners are welcome as there is a shortage 
of canoes. Arrangements are being made by the 
club to rent canoes from the Boy Scouts of America 
for the day. 

Five officers are needed to fill vacancies left by 
graduated students. These offices are president, 
whose duties include making arrangements for 
lodging and activities for field trips; 
vice-president, assisting president in any needed 
manner; treasurer, managing, collecting and 
dispensing club funds; secretary, who is to take 



minutes and correspond with organizations 
involved in the arrangement of field trips and a 
historian who must own a camera and be available 
for all field trips to take pictures and keep news 
stories on the club. 

Marstellar, Science Club sponsor, says that the 
club is a great opportunity for students to see many 
parts of -the state without spending a great deal of 
money. 

"We have gone clamming in Sebastian, diving 
in the Keys and up to the Panhandle exploring 
caves," stated Marstellar. 

A trip to North Carolina toward the end of the 
year was discussed at the meeting. Marstellar has 
taken the club to North Carolina on 10 day 
excursions in past years and noted, "It took close 
to 52,000." If the money for this year's trip is not 
procured by the group a substitution is to be found. 

One goal of the club is to take one field trip a 
month. Money is to be raised by the students 
through bake sales and also through the ICC 
allottment to the club. 

Members are urged to obtain camping gear for 
use throughout the year. 

Science Club activities and positions are open to 
any student. Information is available in 
Marstellar's office.

Dr. Edward M. Eissey, president-elect, is working closely with 
Fred Holling, Coordinator of General Education and Claude 
Edwards, Physical Plant Director initiating a plan for the 
beautification of the college campus. 

The beautification project calls for the planting of trees, shrubs 
and plants throughout the campus. The schedule calls for 80 to 85 
per cent of the work to be completed within this school year. 

"This is one of the projects that I have an intense interest in," 
stated Eissey. 

The beautification of the campus should be a community project, 
and we are hoping to involve the community in the project," 
continued Eissey. 

Eissey has been talking with and writing letters to people who can 
donate plants and trees for the project. He has also contacted the 
Florida Nurseryman Growers Association asking for their aid. 

Trustee George Michael obtained 16 or 17 trees and 
approximately 100 orchids from McKerral's Orchid Range for the 
project. The trees are scheduled for replanting in October. This 
week a backhoe is to be on campus digging holes for the trees. 

A ground breaking ceremony, which marked the beginning of the 
beautification project, was held Friday, August 26. 

Board of Trustee members Susann Anstead and George Michael 
and Dr. Elisabeth W. Erling, Asst. Dean of Academic Affairs, were 
present. 

Palm trees were planted along the 6th Ave. entrance last Friday.

SG senators needed 



By Celia Vock 
Staff Writer 

Student Government (SG) 
executive officers at a recent 
meeting, discussed the upcom- 
ing senate elections and future 
plans. 

SG is encouraging students to 
apply tor senate positions. Any 
full time student that is 
available for weekly meetings 
and has a 2.2 grade, average can 
apply. 

"Most new students don't 
know what SG is. 'Student 
Government' sounds like such 
an important name that it may 
scare them a little. Our job is to 
bring out the problems of the 
student body and try to help in 
solving them. We need 
enthusiastic students and we 



can get things started. There is 
room for everyone who wants to 
get involved," stated SG 
president, Sharon Christenbury. 

Filing for the 24 senate seats 
will continue through Sept. 9, 
with the elections on Sept. 22 
and 23. 

It was decided at Monday's 
meeting that future executive 
meetings would be held on 
Thursday afternoons and senate 
meetings once a week. 

Future plans include working 
toward Academic Scholarships 
for students, inviting local 
legislators to speak on campus 
and having the county's voter 
registration van spend a day on 
campus for students who have 
not yet registered to vote.

Dramaauditionsheld 1 (editorials) [opinions] 



■mmmmm ^mm 



By Sonny Nyman 
Staff Writer 

Look for some 'real' talent to appear in the first 
play of the season, talent that speech teacher and 
talent scout, Sunny Meyer, says has a lot of 
potentiality and great variety. 

Twenty-seven people auditioned Wednesday 
night as prospects for the fall play season. They 
were judged by a five-member panel that included 
Meyer and drama teacher, Frank Leahy. 

The panel was set up in the rear of the 
auditorium to hear the full voice projection, 
diction, and attitude each performer conveyed. 

Open auditions is a time when hidden talents 
emerge and established talents are renewed. 
"This is something we instituted five years ago..." 
says Meyer, "...the purpose of which is to see who 
is available, interested, talented, and who is 
willing to work. " 

The auditions were held with no play in mind. 
Meyer says by the end of the week the title and the 
date for the auditions will be announced. 

Many were returnees from the plays 
"Deadwood Dick" and "Tobacco Road". 

The acts, from one to three minutes, ranged 
from Carolyn Martin's recitation of the satirical 
poem "Better Off Than Washington" to 



Shakespeare's classic "Hamlet" that was 
performed by Jim Elliott. 

In between them were sketches from Broadway 
musicals, a magic act, and song and dance 
routines. A shocking portrayal of a lunatic who 
thought he was Christ in "The Ruling Class" was 
done by Fred St. Laurent. 

Rebecca Castle, veteran of the Spring I play

WPBC, the campus radio 
station, because of several 
malfunctions in the amplifiers, 
will no; begin broadcasting for 
two or three weeks. 

Chuck Miserendino, manager 
of the station, located a 
semi-professional engineer, 
Charlie Hein, capable of 
repairing the broken amplifiers, 
however Dean Moss claims the 
work must be done by a 
professional which is to cost a 
considerable amount more. 

"This money is to be taken 
out of the budget, which means 



WPBC will not be able to buy 
new equipment," declared 
Miserendino. 

WRAP established in April 
1973, changed to WPBC in the 
fail of 1975. The station 
broadcasts music from 8 a.m. to 
2 p.m. in the north end of the 
cafeteria, the SAC lounge and 
the Patio. 

Balanced programming is one 

wnor ma ' n conce P*s at the 
WPBC station. The staff plans 
to offer a variety of sounds this 
year, including rhythm and 
Wues, country rock, rock and 
roll, jazz, progressive and 
bevond. 



We re going to try to make 
the station as professional as 
possible," states Miserendino 
'"But with the lack of equipment 
and funds, it is doubtful that is 
f° . be anything more than a 
Mickey Mouse' operation," 
Miserendino added, "In spite of 
the overwhelming odds, we 
will make this as professional as 
possible." 

Future aims of the staff at 
WPBC are to update equipment 
and expand the communications 
department. 

Increased interest in broad- 
casting media on campus would 
lead to courses covering a full 
broadcast degree

B'Comber lists goals 

We at the Beachcomber have compiled a list of goals that 
we hope to'accomplish within this year. 
They are as follows: 

• Develop a greater understanding of student attitudes and 

desires thereby becoming a better student voice. 

• Inform and entertain our readers. 

• Work to improve faculty-administration communication. 

• Support student activities by providing adequate publicity 

and coverage. 

• Obtain Grant -in- Aids for all academic programs equaling 

those of athletics. 

We intend to maintain the same quality and editorial policy 
as in past years. 

While we will strive to reach these goals, it will take the 
cooperation and aid of the faculty, administration, student 
body and Board of Trustees. 

Input concerning the betterment of the paper will be 
welcomed. 




Utility prices hit ceiling along with consumers 




Qunda Caldwell 
Editorials 



Inflation is a spiraling burden 
on the consumer that will 
inevitably lead to a consumer 
revolt. 

We have been labelled a 
nation of sheep, which may be 
true to a certain extent. Apathy, 
admittedly, is a common trait in 
our society. Most of us are 
willing to accept a great deal of 
abuse before we act and react. 

Judging from letters to Palm 
Beach Post newspaper, utility 
consumers are near the 
breaking point from continued 
financial gouging by the Florida 
Power and Light Co. (FPL). The 
common theme is outrage and 
angry protest, although they do 
not agree on who or what to 
blame. 

Public Service Commission 
(PSC) Chairman Paula Hawkins 
is generally credited with 
having an interest in the public 
good. Commission member Bill 



Bevis, is singled out for his lack 
of concern and understanding. 

As is the case any time a 
ceiling is established for 
maximum earnings allowed by 
law for a regulated industry, any 
return below the ceiling is 
automatic license for repeated 
requests for rate increases. 

Since statistics can be made 
to prove almost anything, the 
data supplied to the commission 
by FPL should not be used as a 
basis for favorable decisions. 

In our state, electricity is 
essential to our very existence. 
Until the advent of mass air 
conditionipg, Florida remained 
highly undeveloped and sparse- 
ly populated. 

Climate control through 
electricity is responsible for 
much of our development, as it 
brought retirees and thousands 
of refugees from bitter cold 
winters looking for a healthy, 
comfortable life in the sunshine 
state. It enabled many people to 
move here who could not 
physically stand any extreme of 
temperature.

Prior to air conditioning, wc 
did not have a stabilized,' 
year-round population or econ- 
omy. A mass spring exodux to 
mountains and northern states 
turned our tourist towns into 
ghost towns. We had two 
seasons: the season and the 
off-season. 

The law of economics 
(increased demand causes mass 
production, in turn causes 
lowering of prices and costs of 
production) is not valid today. 
Our dilemma is that increased 
.consumer demand only raises 
the cost of our electricity. 
Utilities insist that our need for 
it causes a need for expansion, 
which ultimately results in 
higher charges. 

This still happens in spite ot 
increased allowances for deple- 
tion, exemptions, credits, con- 
tingency funds and insurance 
reserves. These idle funds in 
turn produce further revenue. 

Since FPL is a monopoly, 
consumers see no reason for 
costly advertising on TV, nor 
justification for various public 
relations ventures that event- 
, ually end up as operating costs, 
paid for by consumers. With no 
competition, why advertise? 

As personal purchasing 
power painfully declines, it does 
not sit well with customers to 
know that utilities are allowed 
over nine per cent profit. In 
times of tight money and 
employment problems, it would 
seem only right for big business 
to also bite the bullet right along 
with the little man. 

So the stage is now set for 
consumer revolt. Already the 
Miami area and Palm Beaches 
have had a trial boycott, with 
further ones promised. 

It is expected that FPL would 
claim it did not hurt business. It 
would be folly to make any 
admissions that a boycott had an 
effect, for it would encourage 
the consumer to use this 
resistance power again. This is 
the last thing a corporation 
would want the public to learn. 



Purchasing resistance has 
met with success in the past. It 
definitely made an impression 
on the sugar, coffee and auto 
markets. If a boycott was strong 
enough and long enough, 
undoubtedly it would carry 
weight. 

Our forefathers had their 
Boston tea party and the 
American Revolution to protest 
oppressive treatment. Today's 
consumer has the boycott. 



American.', may be slow to 
anger and inclined to iei 
someone else carry the load. 
When the chips arc down and 
the limit is renched, we still 
fight back to preserve what wc 
consider worth saving, No 
greedy business is going to rob 
us of our standard of living. No 
monopolies can continue to 
outrage us. Wc still have the 
will and the power to raise out- 
voices and say, 

"I've had it! This is it.'"

New fresh water supplies sought 



By Kathy Cavanaugh 

Staff Writer 

South Florida is one of the 
fastest growing areas in the 
United States. Larger numbers 
of vacationers who visit the 
"Sunshine State" have not 
returned home because they 
have decided to make Florida a 
permanent vacation area. 

This growth in population has 
put such a heavy strain on South 
Florida's water supply that new 
plans for managing and storing 
water are now being drafted to 
meet the increasing demand for 
fresh water. 

The South Florida Water 
Management District's 
(SFWMD, formerly the Flood 
Control District- FCD) purpose 
is to make possible an adequate 
supply of freshwater to each 
resident of South Florida, 

Therefore, the SFWMD has 
drafted a temporary "Water 
Use and Supply Development 
Plan" in which alternative 
methods for storing and 
supplying water are discussed. 

Since rainfall is the primary 
source of South Florida's 
freshwater supply, it must be 
stored either on surface areas or 
as groundwater in aquifers. 

Backpumping stormwater 
runoff from lower east coast 
canals recharges the surface 
areas such as the three water 
conservation areas located south 
of Lake Okeechobee storing the 
rainfall for use in times of 
drought or heavy demand. 



However, backpumping has 
serious environmental implica- 
tions that must be given 
consideration. 

The pumped water according 
to the SFWMD "will increase 
the nutrient and other chemical 
constituent loads in the 
conservation areas." In other 
words, increased backpumping 
for the purpose of augmenting 
the water supply could either 
beneficially or detrimentally 
alter the ecosystems of the 
vegetation and wildlife com- 
muniries. Further studies are 
now being conducted. 

Tapping the groundwater 
aquifers by extended wellfield 
development is an additional 
alternative plan now being 
discussed by the SFWMD. Yet, 
that too has serious environ- 
mental implications. 

"The incidence of fires during 
the annual dry season would be 
greater than under present 
conditions," states the 
SFWMD. Another implication 
would be an increased threat of 
saltwater intrusion into the near 
surface freshwater aquifers. 

Perhaps the most popular 
alternative is the injection of 
excess freshwater during rainy 
periods for storage into the 
Floridan aquifer, the deepest 
aquifer in South Florida. When 
the freshwater is needed it could 
then be recovered by being 
pumped back up to the surface 
for use. 

The reason that the freshwa- 
ter can be stored in the Floridan 



aquifer is that the freshwater 
forms an underground bubble 
which keeps it separate from the 
surrounding brackish water. 

The advantages of the 
injection system are that the 
water will not evaporate 
underground as it would on a 
surface area above the ground 
and the need for large areas of 
land for reservoirs would be 
minimized. Furthermore, the 
cost of recovery would be 
cheaper than other methods of 
recovering freshwater such as 
the expensive task of desalina- 
tion ("desalting" sea water). 

Another advantage to the 
injection of freshwater into the 
aquifer for storage is that there 
are no serious environmental 
effects that have to be 
considered as they do if 
backpumping and wellfield 
developments increase. 

Many more detailed alterna- 
tives are being considered by 
the SFWMD. Additional scien- 
tific input and new technological 
discoveries will influence the 
District in their revisions of the 
final water use plan document 
scheduled to be completed by 
1980. 

The SFWMD is concerned 
with the preservation of the 
environment as well as with 
meeting the increasing de- 
mands for freshwater. They 
realize that each concern will 
have to reach a compromise if 
both the residents of South 
Florida and the environment are 
to survive. 



Media violence affects the young 



ByDonVaughan 
Venture Editor 

• A Chicago 8-year-old, after seeing "Dirty 
Harry", plays cops and robbers and shoots a 
playmate with a toy rubber-tipped dart gun, putting 
out the child's eye. 

• A Detroit 10-year-old, a day after watching an 
episode of "Baretta" beats a neighbor unconscious 
with a board. 

• A Miami 15-year-old, reenacting a Batman 
comic book, tortures a playmate with a lit cigarette. 

Americans are bombarded everyday with violence 
from a plethora of medium. Television violence 
causes the most controversy because it is the most 
easily accessible. Ninety seven percent of all 
American homes have a television, watched an 
average of six hours a day by American school-age 
children. 

Television violence has caused concern ever since 
networks bought 1930's westerns by the truckload, 
during its inception filling the screen with the same 
violence parents had watched at the movies as kids 
20 years earlier. 

Television slowly matured, and with it story 
content and ideas, filling the screen with blazing 
guns, physical combat and unchecked genocide. 
Between the soap operas and situation comedies, 
police and war programs teach children the fine art 
of killing and maiming. 

Often the villain did not get punished for his 



heinous deeds (networks found that good villains 
were hard to find and costly to write). A theme of 
crime-and-violence does-not-pay means little to 
children when they see "the bad guys" getting off 
scot free. 

Television violence is double-faceted, adult shows 
viewed by children and" children's shows 
themselves. 

Children's shows are viewed primarily on 
Saturday and Sunday mornings, but there are 
special times, also, such as after school and early 
evening before children go to bed. 

When networks first realized the children's world 
of Saturday morning, the shows were animated 
cartoons. They were "poorly written, poorly 
animated and excessively violent", according to 
Evelyn Kaye in "Tgie Family Guide to Children's 
Television." 

For several years Saturday and Sunday mornings 
were filled with these pointless and often plotless 
cartoons, the networks spewing out such things as 
"Milton the Monster", "Atom Ant" and "The 
Herculoids." Violence in the name of comedy was 
the main theme, but the violence often 
overshadowed the humor. 

Bugs Bunny, for example, a Warner Brothers 
cartoon mainstay and perennial favorite, is 
considered by the National Association for Better 
Broadcasting (NA8B) to be much too violent for 
young children. Physical violence was excessive (a 



Star Wars draws raves 



By Maurice Gaffney 
Staff Writer 

A long long time ago.. .in a galaxy far, far 
away, the beautiful princess Leia was 
captured by the evil Darth Vader dark Lord 
of the Sith. 

After many exciting battles, the princess 
was rescued by Luke Skywalker, the young 
handsome rebel, and returned to safety. 

This is the plot of one of the most popular 
movies this year, "Star Wars". But why the 
popularity? 

"There was tremendous promotion done 
on the movie by two of the biggest news 
magazines around, Newsweek and Time. 
They both wrote large articles on it. 

"1 feel that the mood of the nation was 
right. We're in the need for escape, we want 
to get away from it all...But most 
importantly...! believe the earth is being 
prepared for communications with extrater- 
restrial civilization." 

— Dr. Richard Yinger 

"It was just different, but those great 
special effects, that's what caused the 
popularity," mused Chuck Miserendino, a 
communications major. "It was really out of 
this world." 

Bob Girffith, an education major, feels it 
was the futuristic aspect of the movie which 



caused the popularity. "You know it is 
something the whole family could go and 
see, but I thought the book was better." 

Felichia McDonald, 19, slated, "Oh! I 
enjoyed the movie. It was just a funny, good 
guys against bad guys tyj^e of movk, and it 
became popular because the people who saw 
the movie told their friends, who told their 
friends and so on." 

Social Science instructor Dr. Richard 
Yinger, feels there are threfe main reasons 
for the movie's popularity. 

"There was tremendous promotion done 
on the movie by two of the biggest news 
magazines around, Newsweek and Time. 
They both wrote large articles on it. 

"Secondly, I feel that "the mood of the 
nation was right. We're mrhe need for 
escape, we want to get away from it all. 

"But most importantly, " continued 
Yinger, "I believe the Earth is being 
prepared for communications with extrater- 
restial civilization. I also feel the movie was 
intellectually stimulating, but I was rather 
let down by the whole thing ami I don't think 
it was the best movie of th^year." ,->. 

Whatever the reasons, "Star Wars" is 
currently the eleventh top money maker and 
rising fast. Two sequals are plinned and the 
merchandising has become a multi-million 
dollar business. George Lucas definitely has 
a winner. 



national survey found that at least two violent acts 
were committed every minute in the average 
Warner Brothers cartoon). 

Recently surveyed seventh graders reported that 
it was "pretend violence because the characters 
were all right in the next scene, and it was funny the 
way they got hurt. " 

Television at this time was merely a baby sitter 
with little or no educational value. 

But in the early 70's a trend began to develop 
towards the use of television as an educational tool. 
" Sesame Street" and "The Electric Company" 
started this trend, and non-violent children's 
television began to take shape. 

Pressured by educational and family-oriented 
organizations (PTA, Action for Children's 
Television, the American Academy of Pediatrics) the 
networks began experimenting with the educational 
aspect of children's entertainment, and found the 
two could be mixed with excellent results. 

Shows like "Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids", 
"The Shazam/Isis Hour", "Ark II" and "Big Blue 
Marble" entertainingly bring across ideas and 
ideals ranging from international brotherhood to 
ecology to how to cope with the problems of modern 
living. 

The difference between right and wrong, often 
confused by children in today's muddled moral and 
ethical climate, is explained in programs children 
can relate to and enjoy. In South Florida, "Sesame 
Street" is shown twice on Saturdays and followed by 
"ZOOM", another PBS educational program. 

But children's television has a long way to go. The 
educational and nonviolent shows are drowned in a 
sea of video mediocrity. Old, violent cartoons, 
cancelled years before, are being revived for 
Saturday showing while new animated 
shows with no social redeemability but plenty of 
violence are being produced from the network 
animation mills and shown weekly 

Next week: Part Two.

During a recent visit to the 
cafeteria, I noticed a young lady 
who was sitting alone in a far 
corner. She had her head in her 
hands and was crying. 

Being the soft-hearted type, I 
walked over and asked her what 
was wrong. 

"Helen hasn't told Frank he 
was pregnant," she replied. 
"And her husband doesn't even

Boston : rapid rise to prom inence 




By Perry Jayasekera 
Staff Writer 

A year and a half ago, three 
groups achieved superstar 
status on the basis of one 
massive selling album, Peter 
Frampton, Fleetwood Mac and 
Boston. 

The first two groups (record- 
ing and touring for nearly a 
decade), are only now reaping 
the profits. 

Boston came out of the 
obscurity of a basement-turned- 
recording studio to headline 
some of the largest areas and 
auditoriums in the country. 
Lead vocalist Bradley Delp, 
guitarist Barry Goudreau and 
leader - producer - songwriter - 
guitarist Tom Scholz had been 
composing and playing their 
own original material and 
recording them in Scholz' s 
basement for nearly five years, 
while working at other jobs. 

It is interesting to note that 
Scholz's former job was a 



$30-thousand a year position at 
Polaroid's production division 
and he was graduated from 
M.I.T. 

In June 1976, after being 
rejected by most of the major 
recording companies, Epic 
Records took a chance and 
signed them to a contract. The 
three songwriters then recruited 
old friends, Sib Hashian 
(drums) and Fran Sheehan 
(bass). The five went to Los 
Angeles to put the final touches 
on their album. 

A month after its August, 
1976 release, 200,000 copies of 
the album had been sold. By 
December it went gold (50,0,000 
copies) and by June of this year, 
it had sold around four and a 
half million copies. 

Its success is attributed to the 
Top Ten single, "Moru Than A 
Feeling", heavy radio airplay 
and a 14-week cross-country 
tour (which hit Florida's 
Hollywood Sportatorium on 



Easter weekend and included a 
sell-out performance at New 
York's Madison Square Gar- 
den). 

Their first few concerts 
featured exploding amplifiers, 
near electrocutions and general 
technical foul-ups. On their first 
tour, they were the opening act 
for Black Sabbath, Jeff Beck, 
Robin Trower and various other 
heavies. But as they gained 
experience, better equipment 
and improved stage presenta- 
tion, they ended up headlining 
the rest of the tour and a recent 
50-date tour as well. 

What is it about this album 
that has everybody listening? It 
is multi-faceted, melodic hard 
rock that is devoid of the 
repetitious, grinding guitar 
work typified by Kiss, Black 
Sabbath and Deep Purple. 

Boston's music is marked by 
lean, muscular vocals, precise 
voice and guitar harmonies and 
catchy rock melodies, plus a 
clear-headed, unpretentious 
approach to composing and 
recording hard rock. All this 
gives the album a "dynamic" 
appeal, making Boston one of 
the most popular bands of the 
year.

Some information in the

Monday, Aug. 29, was 
incorrect. 

EMT's may not give drugs 
without a doctor's orders, and 
EMT's do not use CB radios, 
they use a completely different 
system. Also, there are only 
two levels of training recog- 
nized b'y the state of Florida.

Receive placque 



By Lisa Ostberg 
Staff Writer 

The late Dr. John E. Dalton was again 
honored by his former colleagues for his 
efforts in founding the JC Dental Health 
Service (DHS) Department when a bronze 
placquewas dedicated in his honor at a 
special ceremony. 

The department opened in 1962. Last 
December the Dr. John E. Dalton 
Memorial Loan Fund of $3200 was 
initiated at JC to be used by students in 
dental health programs at the college. 

Dr. Dalton has been deservedly 
honored by his co-workers and students. 
According to Dr. M.Lee Toothman, an 
associate of Dr. Dalton's, "Many, many, 
people's lives have been touched by this 
program; dentistry benefited, people in 
the community benefited, and many 



careers were started as a result of his 
work." 

In presenting the plaque to JC, Dr. J. 
Paul Shelton, chairman of the Advisory 
Committee for the DHS Department, said 
that Dalton "had the ability to invision 
the needs of dentistry 10-15 years down 
the road." 

"Only through his sensitivity, were we 
able to work with the professionals in the 
field to work out an effective program," 
said JC President Dr. Harold Manor, as 
he accepted the placque ' 'gratefully and 
in deep appreciation." 

Among those attending the presenta- 
tion were Mrs. John E. Dalton and 
daughters, Janet, Ann, and Nancy, and 
Dr. Hal Hutchins, chairman of the JC 
DHS Department.

JC adds counselor 
to North campus 



By Kathy Cavanaugh 
Staff Writer 

John Jenkins, a former 
Pahokee High School counselor 
for five years, is now counseling 
JC North students. 

Jenkins has worked with Dr. 
Otis Smith (former JC North 
counselor) since July 1 receiving 
what he called, "on the job 
training right through registra- 
tion and the drop and add 
period." 

"It's getting better every- 
day," remarked Jenkins. "It's 



going to be nice working here. ' ' 

In addition to working at JC 
North, Jenkins is involved with 
the Gold Coast Voter's League. 
He explained that the Voter's 
League is a non-political 
organization whose primary 
goal is to make people aware of 
the importance of voting. 

Smith was replaced by Jenkins 
last week. He moved to the 45th 
St. JC North Campus where he 
has continued counseling North 
students from 7:30 a.m. - 3.30

Struggle for no. 1 begins in NCAA 



By Jim Swann 
Staff Writer 

It's that time of year again when the 
national title fever spreads across all 
major university campuses around the 
nation. The race for No. 1 in the NCAA is 
set and the entrees are coming to the 
blocks. 

It's hard to feel any sensation from the 
race for the national title when we go to a 
school that does not have a football team. 
Then again there are still those among us 
who sit glued to the tube on Saturdays 
and thrill to the exploits of the Fighting 
Irish or the Gators or whatever your 
preference is. It is for those college 
football fanatics that this article is 
written. 

The race this year should be a close one 



as many teams have the potential to go all 
the way. 

First we look at the east, the home of 
last year's national champs, the 
Pittsburgh Panthers. Pittsburgh lost the 
Heisman Trophy winner Tony Dorsett 
and 30 Iettermen to boot. They also lost 
coach Johnny Majors who deserves much 
of the credit for the Panthers' success. It 
might look bad for new coach Jack 
Sherrill, who is left with a lot of talent but 
not too much depth. If Sherrill can get by 
without numerous injuries and can shoot 
down Notre Dame in the opener, then it 
could be another year of the cat. 

Giving Pitt trouble this year will be 
state rival Penn State. With 15 returning 
starters the Lions are strong enough to do 
Coach Joe Paterno's talking for him. But 



offensive line inexperience and a tough 
schedule could keep the Lions at home 
during bowl time. 

In the Deep South, especially the SEC, 
there should be a lot of scrapping. The 
SEC has 4 potential title contenders in 
Alabama, Florida, Georgia and Mississ- 
ippi State. 

Alabama, always a contender, is faced 
with a tough schedule for '77. Not only 
does the Tide face other SEC 
powerhouses but also troublemaking 
Nebraska and USC. With a young squad 
and a rough schedule, Bear Bryant has 
his work cut out for him. 

Florida, which lost the SEC title to 
Georgia last year is ready to try again 
with a strong squad. Standouts like 
halfback Tony Green and spit end Wes 



Chandler make this a promising year for 
the Gators • 

Georgia which won the SEC last year 
has lost a lot to graduation. They'll have a 
struggle to repeat last year's 
performance. 

Mississippi State may well be the "new 
kids in town" as far as titles go. The 
Bulldogs (not to be confused with 
Georgia) are coming off a 9-2 season and 
are top contenders this year. 

The south also has power in 
independents like Georgia Tech and an 
improving FSU. It also holds a martyr in 
the Univ. of Miami which plays one of the 
toughest schedules in all of college 
football.

Student soccer fans 
organize JC squad

HEADS UP- Esmail Shahrezaei practices his soccer technique. He 
hopes to be able to use his talents as a member of a soccer team 
here at JC, 



By Jim Goodman 
Sports Editor 

As everyone knows by now, soccer is the most 
popular sport in the world. The United States is 
just starting to catch up in this respect. 

Evidence of this is the successful season that the 
North American Soccer League (NASL) enjoyed 
this year. The Ft. Lauderdale Strikers proved that 
soccer can go over big in South Florida. Over 5,000 
screaming fans greeted Pele and the New York 
Cosmos at the airport after they won the NASL 
championship. 

Now the soccer craze may be finally coming to 
JC. Two foreign exchange students, Esmail 
Shahrezaei and Gino Jimminez, are trying to form 
a soccer team here to join the Palm Beach County 
Soccer League (PBCSL). 

Anyone interested in joining the soccer should 
attend a meeting today in the SAC lounge at 1:20 
p.m. 

Ahahrezaei and Jimmenez are to be both the 
coaches and players for the college team. Both 
played in the PBCSL the past season. They played 
for Business Machinery Inc. of Lake Worth and led 
the team to the finals where they were defeated 3-2 
by New England of Lantana. 



Shahrezei, 23, is a civil engineer major from 
Iran. He's had five years of soccer experience. 

Jimmenez is majoring in hotel management here 
at JC. A native of Paraguay, he has 10 years of 
soccer experience. 

Since there are II players on a soccer team, the 
minimum number of participants is 22. This 
is so there can be full scrimmage practices 
consisting of two team. ''"'." 

"We have about 12 players interested right 
now." Shahrezaei said. 

The soccer league starts the season in early 
October. The matches are played on Sunday for 24 
consecutive weeks. 

As for right now the team is to be made up on a 
voluntary basis. Shahrezaei and Jimmenez hope to 
be able to get some money from ihe college for 
uniforms, but nothing has been decided yet. 

No soccer experience is required to join up. 

"Even if someone has very little knowledge of 
soccer, he can still join up and we can teach him," 
stressed Jimminez. 

Shahrezaei is optimistic about the team's 
chances in the league if enough players sign up. 

"We would have a good chance of winning the 
championship the first season," he said.

Pacer head coach Dusty Rhodes 
claimed that the toughest team they had 
faced in the regional playoffs was Puerto 
Rico, who they beat 5-4. Rhodes said he 
was pleasantly surprised when the host 
team. South Carolina, knocked Puerto 
Rico out of the tournament. 

Rhodes said that pitching was the 
team's strong suit although he admitted 
that Post 12 had been helped by timely 
hitting and a strong defense. 

Rhodes had some good and, possible, 
bad news for the Pacer team. "All the 
scouts (major league) had been 
impressed by the way the team had 
played," he said. "I think we (Pacers) 
will probably lose some players in the 
January draft." Coach Rhodes was 



referring to the fact that 11 members of 
the Post 12 team are on the Pacer squad. 

Rhodes said that among the Pacer 
players doing well on Post 12 are: Leland 
Wright, who won the final game against 
Georgia; Scott Benedict, who had three 
hits in the final; and Roy Alverez who hit 
the game winning bases loaded triple in 
the same game. 

Apparently the crowds, which 
numbered up to 2,500, did not adversely 
affect the Post 12 team. In fact, Rhodes 
said that "after South Carolina was 
eliminated most people were rooting for 
us to win." 
Altogether the team was well received" 



in South Carolina. Rhodes said, "The 
food was great and the people were really 
friendly, the players have nothing to 
complain about." 

Looking ahead to the national 
competition Rhodes said "It'll be a lot 
tougher now, but as long as we don't 
make mistakes we should do real well." 
He said that the two toughest teams are 
usually California and Texas. 

However, Rhodes appeared more 
concerned with the weather than the 
opposition. "It was 39 degrees there 
(New Hampshire) the other night," he 
said, "and pitcher Ted Adkins has had a 
virus all week. "

dampen them a little. 

Notre Dame rules Indiana 
and may make that rule 
nationwide this year. Coach 
Dan Devine has 11 returning 
starters on defense and eight 
on offense that make his team 
an early pick for a national 
title. 

The Southwest boasts teams 
like Houston. Texas, Texas 
A&M, Texas Tech and others. 

Houston which was co-hold- 
er of the southwestern 
Conference title with Texas 
Tech. is loaded with 14 
returning starters that could 
bring back another crown this 
year. 

Texas with new coach Fred 
Akers is trying to improve last 
year's disma! 5-5-1 record. A 
lack of depth will hurt but a 
good QB and talented 
receivers will make the 
chances better. 

Texas A&M is quite strong 
with returning backfield that 
gained 2400 yards rushing last 
year. The defense lost a lot but 
the Aggies appear ready to 
pick up where they left off last 
year. 

Texas Tech also SWC 
co-holder has 15 returning 

starters and a lot of senior 
performers . Last vear the team 



was mostly a junior squad, so 
look out because the kids have 
grown up. 

The Big Eight holds some of 
the nation's big powers in 
Colorado, Nebraska and Okla- . 
homa. 

The Sooners are strong all 
around and definitely a 
national contender. But time 
will tell as the Sooners face a 
rough schedule. 

Nebraska has a smaller but 
quicker defense this year 
which will hopefully stop the 
Sooner Schooer. A good 
backfield is also a bright spot 
fortheCornhuskers. 

Colorado is a new hopeful 
for the Big Eight title and with 
14 returning starters have a 
good shot,but then again two 
of their opponents and 
enemies are Nebraska and 
Oklahoma. 

The Pacific coast is not as 
strong as usual with UCLA and 
USC both hurting from 
graduation. Washington is 
also a strong contender for the 
Pac-8 crown. 

From this preview of the 
college football scene for '77 it 
looks like Michigan, Notre 
Dame and Oklahoma are the 
teams to be watching out for in 
the race for the NCAA crown.

New foreign players 



By Janice Erieger 
SteffWriter 



The mens' tennis team is to 
open this season with a string 
of new players from various 
parts of the world. 

"Each newcomer is an 
excellent player," coach 
Hamid Faquire said. He 
continued," It's hard to rate 
one better than another. 
•Between the top four, it's 
tough to decide who'll play 
first, second, third and 
fourth." 



The players competing this 
season are Gary Trinder, 
Andover England; John Mag- 
inley, St. John Antiqua;(West 
Indies) Jose Tangi, Mercaybp, 
Venezeula; Richard Lamprael- 
li, California; Paul Vishneski, 
West Palm Beach; Bill 
Tahsen, Jupiter; Jeff Gear, 
North Palm Beach; and last 
seasons' Xavier Pino from 
Gayaquill , Ecuador. 



Gary Trinder, 18, has come 
here on a tennis scholarship. 
Trinder has been playing 
tennis for six years and is 
known for his fight and 
determination to win. 

"There's much higher 



competition in Florida and 
more people to play," 
he commented. As far as 
practice, Trinder said, "It's 
tough training but it will pay 
off in the long run." 

John Maginley, 17, has also 
come on scholarship. Playing 
for five years, Miginley played 
No. 1 for Barbados and won all 
school matches. 

One of Maginley's assets is 
his excellent speed. He feels 
that Antigua's competition is 
good, but not as good as 
Floridas. He also feels that 
coach Faquire is very good and 
knows what he's doing. 

"There's nothing between 
the top four players. We can 
all beat each other at different 
times, so we're going to be 
tough to defeat," he said. 

Xavier Pino, 19, is not a 
newcomer but won every 
regular season match playing 
No. 4 last season. Pino has 
played tennis for nine years for 
clubs and his country winning 
many trophies. 

"This team looks better 
Every player is good. I think 
we have a good chance to 
reach state and if we're lucky, 
nationals," Pino said.

Hicks takes new job 



Dr. Errol Hicks, social science 
instructor for 11 years, has 
resigned. 

The resignation was submit- 
ted after Hicks received an 
administrative position at East- 
ern Arizona Community College 
(EACC) in Thatcher, Ariz. 

Hicks at one time served as 
director of research at JC, a 
position similar to the one he is 
to have as head of research and 
development at EACC. 

Hicks also served as Chair- 
man of the JC Faculty Senate 
until its abolition, a member of 



Board from 1970-74 and chief 
negotiator for the United 
Faculty this year. 

President of the Unions' 
Executive Board Maxine Vignau 
said, "Hicks is certainly a loss 
that will be felt by the faculty 
and the students. He is a bright 
and intelligent man. ' ' 

Prior to his resignation, Hicks 
had been transferred to the 
South Campus in spite of his 
objections. 

Chairman of the social science 
dept., Dr. Sam Bottosto said, "I 



transferred to 
Campus because 
most qualified." 



the South 
he was the 



Before leaving, Hicks stated, 
"I have applied for positions 
with several colleges over the ' 
past two years, and three or four 
times I have made it to the final 
group of applicants being 
considered." 

Hicks, a Lake Worth resident, 
spent two years at JC before 
attending the University of 
Florida (UF). He was graduated 
from UF with Bachelor, of Arts 



the Palm Beach County School recommended that Dr. Hicks be and Masters degrees. 

United Faculty decides against 
Special Master proceedings 



United Faculty (UF) presented a letter to Dr. 
Manor and the Board of Trustees (BOT), stating 
their intention to bypass the Special Master 
proceedings in faculty contract negotiations. 

UF explained that instead of engaging: in Special 
Master Proceedings, the union plans to go directly 
to the legislative body, the BOT, for contract 
settlement. 

Last year's Special Master proceedings were an 
unsatisfactory method of dispute resolution, and a 
"fruitless expenditure of taxpayers' monies" 
costing both the administration and faqulty union 
large sums, said United Faculty. 

Portions of the Special Master's report favorable 



to faculty union were rejected by the 
administration. 

Administration Attorney Jesse Hogg informed 
UF that he expects an excess of $4,000, not 
including his own fees to be spent on Special 
Master proceedings this year. 




jaid they think the 
"were tax monies 
freely and 



In the letter to Dr. Manor, U» 
public would be better served 
not further expended so 
unproductively." 

According to UF, Hogg repeatedly said the final 
decision rests with the BOT, Therefore, faculty 
union has asked to be placed on the October Board 
meeting agenda.

Ceasebargcining 
Says FSBA leader 

By Bud Newman 
Reprinted from Palm Beach Post 

Declaring that Florida's teachers "are more concerned about 
unionism than they are teaching," the president of the Florida 
School Board Association yesterday called for an end to collective 
bargaining rights for public employees in education . 

In an attack on teachers and the collective bargaining process, Dr. ' 
• Peter Everett of Tallahassee told the State Constitution Revision 
Commission that collective bargaining is a big contributor to much . 
that's wrong with public education today and that teachers are far 
too greedy. 

"Collective bargaining in the public sector has resulted in a 
deterioration of education in the public schools," Everett said. 
"Millions of the taxpayer's dollars and thousands of man hours are 
being spent to negotiate with private interest groups throughout the 

state. 

"Teacher unions are demanding exorbitant raises and 
corresponding reduction in their work effort," he said. "They 
demand increases of from 18 to 2S percent each year. They demand 
private lunchroom facilities, and waitresses to serve them. Already 
working below 40 hours a week, they demand their work week be set 
at 30 hours a week." 

He urged the commission to put new language in the state 
Constitution saying: "Employees of district school systems are 
prohibited from forming or joining labor unions or associations and 
from bargaining collectively with their employers." 



Vet's Administration counselor available 



About 700 JC students come in contact with Jack 
Bell, coordinator of veteran affairs. , 

Since January of 1976, Bell has worked with 
Fred Ward to help veterans having problems with 

the Veterans Administration (VA). Assisting 
veterans to fill out applications and informing them 

.of guidelines concerning minimal grade point 
averages are sonic aspects of Bell's job. 

Fred Ward has been working for the VA on this 
campus since 1973. He commutes between their 
office in St. Petersburg and JC. As a 



representative of VA he is available here on 
Thursdays and Fridays. 

Finding employment for disabled veterans is 
Robert Espada's responsibility. 

Espada is employed by the Florida Employment 
Agency to work with such veterans looking for 
work. 

Students often complain to the VA office that 
they have not received their checks. Bell takes 
steps to expedite the matter. 

The veterans office in the administration 
building is open from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Staff Writer 

More than halfway toward 
completion, Sixth Avenue South 
expansion has had few 
problems. 

Houdaille Construction Co. of 
Fort Lauderdale, the low bidder 
to the state at $1,321,168.41, 
should complete the project 
within 400 calendar days which 
began last February. 

Tom Woolsey, superinten- 
dent of the job for Houdaille 
said, "The bridge is already 
built and we are ahead of 
schedule. Every job that I've 
been on has been finished in the 
given time without penalty." 

Woolsey cited bad weather as 
a problem that has plagued the 
work. 

When completed, the new 
lane additions will provide JC 
students greater access to 1-95. 
An added item in the 



construction was a traffic light 
requested by JC President 
Manor. 

The light, now in the. 
operational hands of the state, is 
soon to be turned over to the 
county. When this happens, the 
JC Security force will be able to 
control the mechanism during 
peak traffic periods from 12 to 
12:15 and l:10tol:20. 

JC Security chief Grant * 
Bartels said, "The only time 
we are to direct traffic now that 
the signal is up is when it is 
flashing amber." During the 
regular cycle there is to be no 
traffic detail, as this could cause 
accidents and confusion. 

Bartels noted that during the 
construction there were no 
reported accidents and that the 
employees from Houdaille 
cooperated by smoothing down 
the dirt at the college entrance 
to help avoid rough handling. 



As a main safety point the 
lane broadening puts an end to 
that dangerous left-hand turn 
that west bound cars make to 
enter the John Prince Park 
Complex, which forces cars in 
back of them on to the dirt. 

Another problem encountered 
during the expansion was one of 
the nostalgic variety concerning 
the sentiments involved over the 
removal of the historic banyan 
tree. " *".' 

Palm. Beach County Engineer 
Herbert Kahlert said the lane 
widening was a policy deter- 
mined by the Board of County 
Commissioners. 

"It was an 1-95 Interchange 
agreement approved by the 
Lake Worth City Commission 
seven or eight years ago," 
stated Kahlert. 

He explained that the project 
is being funded out of secondary 
gas taxes (non-advalorem). 



College Career Day set 



Representatives from more than 100 senior 
colleges, 30 businesses and industrial professions 
are to gather in the gym for the annual "College 
Career Day." 

Organized by the Palm Beach County School 
Counsellors Association and the JC Student 
Personnel Department, College Career Day is 
designed to allow students to meet delegates from 
numerous universities and educational organiza- 
tions. 

There are to be booths set up and tables covered 
with brochures that would be of interest to the 
prospective transfer student. 

This is an opportunity to learn about the various 
work-study programs offered. Students will also be 
able to find brochures on scholarship entrance 
requirements, transferable credit information 
along with other data and activities available at the 
universities. 



Also participating in the career day are: 

The North and South Education Center, with 
many vocational technical occupation entry 
programs. 

The Adult and Community Education Center, 
with its community schools and a great variety of 
programs for students of all ages. 

Business, professional and industrial groups on 
the county and state levels will be on hand to 
advise entry into the various educational programs 
they have to offer. 

The Armed Forces are also presenting their 
career programs. 

Central, North, South and Glades campuses are 
to b| represented. 

"We estimate at least 3,000 students," stated 
coordinator, Paul Glynn. " 

'•College Career Day" is Nov. 1 from 9-00 
a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Metric Measurement 

A valuable change? 

■%j 




Gunda Caldwell | 
Editorials 



We are told that since 90% of the 
world is using the metric 
system, we must switch over 
from a system that we have used 
successfully for hundreds of 
years, 

On the other hand, since less 
than 10% of the world's 
population live, under a 
democracy, should the same 
logic apply to our form of 
government? Because so few 
people live in a free country, 
should we give up our freedom 
to conform with the rest of the 
world? 

Have we ceased to act as 
leaders and become followers, 
no matter what the cost or 
complications? 

The only reason given for the 
change is that other countries 
don't use our system. That 
would hardly seem justification 
f or jthji. e normous cost and 
complicated confusion such a 
conversion would create. 

In 1975 President Ford signed 
a bill calling for a voluntary 
conversion to the metric 
measures, without any specified 
deadline and without compul- 
sion. If the American people 
wanted it, the goal would be 
conversion Iwithin ten years. 
This flexible and innocent 
sounding bill has turned into 
some sort of mandate that has 
brought out massive consumer 
resistance. The general attitude 



seems to be that, like it or not, 
we are going to get it crammed 
down our throats. 

The conversion at govern- 
ment level has proceeded at 
snail's pace. Open consumer 
resentment has made the 
federal government hesitate. 

William Cox, federal highway 
administrator, last June an- 
nounced his agency had 
abandoned plans to begin 
coverting all road signs to 
metric for the summer. 

Two months later the chief of 
the technical procedures branch 
of the National Weather 
Services, Duane S. Cooley, said 
that the Weather Bureau has 
delayed indefinitely its proposal 
to begin reporting meteorolog- 
ical statistics only in metric 
units. 

Where the federal agencies 
hesitate, some states and 
industry blithely continue at 
their own pace. 

Behind the idea and the push 
for conversion is the U.S. Metric 
Assoc, a nonprofit educational 
group that has worked toward 
its use for the past 60 years. 

The Association's regional 
director for the east, Nat. L. 
Friedman, admits widespread 
opposition indicates people are 
very reluctant to accept the 
change. Because of this, he 
believes we shall be using the 
traditional measures for some 
time into the foreseeable future. 

With the lacklustre educa- 
tional inovations that have 
plagued our educational struc- 
ture and the tainted one-world 
concept we still reject, there is 




^ ' 

*<*"ltO*nrB. IVJ7 



Amy Carter sent us over, Mr. Lance. She said she already knows how to count. 



a growing support for retaining 
our own traditional institutions 

Nostalgia is prominent on the 
scene as we cling to the little 
tradition we have managed to 
generate for ourselves. Wc do 
not wish to conform to Europe. 
That was the very purpose for 
which America was created. 

As for the practical aspect, 
consumers do not wish to go 
through mental computation 
every time a measurement is 
required. This is like giving us a 
language problem so that each 
time someone talked, he would 



have to mentally translate words 
from one language to another. 

There is no law saying we 
must change. If there were and 
the majority did not want to 
accept it, the law could be 
repealed. As it now stands, the 
Metric Conversion Act of 1975 
merely establishes guidelines if 
we choose to convert. 

Since most of us do not want a 
change, it is within out power to 
stop it. Convenience for 
industry with overseas business 
contacts is not a good reason for 
the American consumer. Out- 



traditional system has been 
satisfactory and accurate. Met- 
ric is available for foreign use. 

Metric is not as accurate in 
figuring one-half degrees, so 
would it not be wiser for the rest 
of the world to convert to our 
more efficient system? We have 
tried to bring freedom to 
peoples of the world. Should we 
not be trying to convert them to 
our system of mcasurment, as 
well, rather than keeping step 
with them? 

The time to speak up is now. 
We can choose not to go metric. 



Students suffer from administration - faculty standoff 



There are no villans at JC, only victims. 
And there will be more as the 
union-administration knock-down, drag- 
ged-out legal war continues to consume 
the major attention on campus. 

Students . have become weary of the 
continuous battle. We are learning first 
hand how a clash between the two can 
erode morale, integrity and well being of 
the students and faculty . 

Administration is in the driver's seat, 
so is amply protected, with funds to draw 
upon to continue the battle indefinitely. 
The rest of as feel battle fatigue. 

Ironically, teachers traditionally are, 
adverse to unions. For them to have 



reached a point that they could embrace 
unionism with such fervor does not speak 
well for the centers where this happens. 

We are learning much from this 
spectacle. We understand that adminis- 
tration has spent monies in legal fees far 
in excess of what they deny to instructors 
as pay raises. If there is enough money 
for the thousands of dollars already spent 
for legal fees and court costs, why could 
not this same amount have been paid to 
our instructors for salary and release 
time? 

We see mature, well educated 
intellectuals unable to sit down and 
mediate to a peaceful conclusion. The 



rigid and uncompromising stances 
remain, with a feeling that by now a 
"kill" is necessary for settlement. 
Administration seems to feel that a "Pvt. 
Slovak incidence" is needed to break the 
morale and will of the faculty, to make 
them conform. 

The rancor and bitterness leave little 
room for compromise. It affects 
everything on campus. An environment 
such as this is not conducive to learning. 

It is easy to understand the student 
apathy we endure. Students crawl into a 
shell and decide within the first few 
weeks to avoid involvement while they 
are here. So activities die and student 



participation becomes nil. The less 
contact outside of class, the less the 
conflict can affect them. 

We are tlr n] of the continuing war on 
campus. We call for compromise and 
peace. We want to get back to the 
business for which we came. The 
taxpayer's monies and our tuitions should 
be spent on education, not legal battles 
and politics. 

Isn't it about time someone remembers 
the real victims? We, who must finally 
pay the bill, call for good faith bargaining 
and a speedy settlement. We have paid 
enough.

Dear Editor, 

In at least one respect, we 
Palm Beach Junior College 
teachers are begining to feel 
that 1984 is already here. In 
the past three years we have 
experienced a confusing 
variety of changes in our 
working conditions - almost 
all of them painful. 

These are not changes 
which any teacher's union 
has negotiated for us, but 
rather changes which have 
been arbitrarily imposed 
upon us by the Board of 
Trustees. 

We feel thoroughly frus- 
trated because, when Gov. 
Askew and the Florida 
Legislature named each local 
board as "legislative body" 



Connolly states 1984 here 
Instructors feel frustration 

and final authority in local 
matters, they wiped out our 
rights of appeal-except to our 
neighbors. 

When I foolishly allowed 
myself to be bullied into a 
196-day contract which 
called on me to teach an 
additional summer session at 
half pay, I thought that this 
loss of money would be the 
1 extent of the damage I would 
suffer for the sake of 
grasping at some limited 
"security." 

However, we have just 
been informed that our 
September check will be only 
a single two-week check. To 
compound this damage, I 
discovered that the Gold 



Coast Credit Union has 
already impounded the bulk 
of my meager savings in 
order to cover my September 
loan payment "in advance." 

I also know that the auto 
insurance company, electric- 
al utility, and other compu- 
terized creditors are unlikely 
to read or to accept any 
explanations or requests I 
may have to offer for failing 
in my obligations to them. 

Since I also have obliga- 
tions to my family, I feel 
strong resentment toward 
those select few people who 
have both the power and the 
will to torment us with such 
deceitful tricks. 

John M. Connolly

Freaks of nature no longer 
ostracized as monstrosities 




through a n[) 
periscope 



GUNDA CALDWELL 



During the last decade or so, 
a new youth cult chose the word 
"freak" to describe its status as 
dissident but physiologically 
normal, Far-out postures and 
hallucinogenic drugs created 
these "hippies," "longhairs" 
and "heads." 

Then came the "Jesus 
freaks," who created another 
type of deviation from normal by 
dropping out of the mainstream 
and forming a totally new 
concept of a religious life. 

Traditionally, freak was used 
to refer to physiologically 
deviant humans who had the 
misfortune to be born very . 
different from the so-called 
"normal" person. The giants, 
dwarfs, hermaphrodites, the fat 
ladies and the living skeletons 
— all were strangers who were 
shunned and misunderstood by 
a superstitious society. Because 
of this, many eventually became 
the exploited members of 
sideshows. 

Historically, freaks were 
named monsters. The root word 
means warning or to show forth, 
implying that human abnormal- 
ities are products of a design by 
providence and not merely an 
accident of nature or the victim 
of a malignant chemical 
environment. Most of us have 
deviations from what is 
considered average, but these 
unfortunates were the mon- 
strosities of the world. The very 
name carries a fearsome and 
overshadowing connotation. 

We conjure up visions of 
Dracula, Frankenstein's mon- 
ster and King Kong, as well as 
gruesome "things" from pseu- 
do-science. 

Whatever attitude we may 
take about them, these freaks 



remain alien and misunderstood 
in our everyday lives. They 
represent a demonstration of 
our own outlandish nightmares. 

A true freak stirs two 
emotions — superstitious fright 
and sympathy. Since he is one 
of us, we do not understand 
what forces or powers created 
this alteration. The fate that cast 
the freak in his life role is a force 
that could affect each one of us 
at any time. 

It signals a challenge to what 
we feel is "normal" and 
shatters our security as • a 
creature of true destiny. His 
affliction could just as surely 
have been ours, so we feel great 
empathy. "There but for the 
grace of God, go I," strikes a 
cold note of fear that providence 
has tampered with humanity. 

The handicapped and crip- 
pled individuals do not have the 
same effect. With understand- 
able and obvious causes, we 
become assured that our 
standards of normalcy are not 
violated. Accidents, illnesses 
and loss of functions we can 
understand and readily accept. 

There have been long 
standing debates about which 
came first, the grotesque 
fantasies or the abnormal events 
that began the nightmares 
which eventually became the 
deformed deities or demons. 

Anthropologists continue to 
find evidence proving grotesque 
depiction of man took place from 
the beginning . of art, itself. 
Distortion is the key to 
symbolism in the early 
developed art. When man 
needed monsters to believe in, 
he created them. 

Childhood is the time we are 
most uncertain of, the relativity 
of our senses and reactions to 
the world about us.xWe are as 



unsure of our bodies as we are 
of the environment. In youth it 
is most difficult to separate 
myth from reality, nightmare 
from truth and to maintain a 
balance between them. 

.Dwarfs and giants challenge 
our sense of scale and 
. hermaphrodites our clearly 
divided world, of male and 
female. "Gulliver's Travels" 
continues to vicariously enter- 
tain every young generation, 
just as "Alice in Wonderland" 
teaches us the importance of 
being the right size and form for 
every occasion. 

At maturity, we finally begin 
to realize that normalcy means 
an accommodation or confirma- . 
tion of ourselves as fitting into a 
vague, general pattern. We 
learn that monster or freak is 
simply a demonstration of 
failure to fit into the general 
pattern. 

Circus freaks affirm to 
children and immature adults 
that they, themselves, are 
normal, whereas exhibits re- 
main the real monsters. The lion 
man, the dog-faced boy, the 
Siamese twins, the extremes 
and excesses all represent our 
deepest fears and horrors. 

The distinction between them 
and ourselves may be merely an 
illusion to reinforce our sense of 
security; There are moments for 
all of us that we see 
freakishness or abnormality in 
ourselves. We learn the 
normalcy of a malformed and 
the precarious balance between 
the two that we maintain. We 
catch glimpses of malformation 
in the best of the species and a 
beauty in the deformed . 

We are left unsure what 
normalcy is. The more man 
.learns about himself, the more 
unsure he becomes of the 
wisdom of standardization. Only 
the very ignorant is confident 
about the structure we have 
created. The thoughtful person 
is left wondering just how we all 
fit in the overall pattern.

"Black is Pride" 

By Davey Morris 
Staff Writer 

Black Is 
Black is the color 
on my skin; 

Black is the colors when the 
Sun fails to shine. 

Black is my people 
From the beginning of time; 
Black is also pride, my pride, 
which has been walked on 
Time and time again.. 

Black would be the day 

If the Black man decides 

to fight; 

But then again, 

Would that be right? 

Black is my heart 
To see that after; 
All this time unity; 
Is so very hard to find. 



New TV shows Violence in medio offects behovior 

pack no punch 



By Don Vaughan 
Venture Editor f M 

Television is similar to strategic war games. The three 
networks are the armies, their executives the warring 
generals and ratings the hills to be taken. 

It's a tough war fraught with many casualties Shows 
survive and shows die, to be quickly replaced with one of 
the endless supply of soldiers in the halls. 

This appears to be the season of defection. Tony 
Randall and Wonder Woman have gone from ABC to 
CBS, and the Bionic Woman from ABC to NBC. 

Their survival has yet to be determined, but chances 
look good. All had fairly good ratings at ASC, and inless 
minor changes (Wonder Woman has been moved 
miraculously to the present and the Bionic Woman has 
been given a counterpart in the shape of a bionic canine 
named Maximilliau) shatter the aura, they should be 
around a while. 

This is more than can be said for a large portion of the 
new Fall schedule. 1977 is the "Year of the Change." 
Violence is out, comedy in. 

ABC leads the pack with its entire line of newcomers 
being comedies, some of dubious quality. 

"Carter Country" concerns a white police chief and 
black deputy in a small rural Georgia town. You have 
three guesses as to why such a show wassonceivedf and 
the first two. don't count. Oh, for Sidney Portier and 
Virgil Tibbs. If President Carter sticks around, so should 
the show, unless America has had its fill with Mayberry 
country hospitality. 

The controversially of "Soap" has spread near and 
far. Church groups have raised holy Hell over portions of 
it and advertisers are running scared. Nonetheless, ABC 
programming director Fred Silverman is sticking by his 
guns. From the looks of things, it wi^l probably, be 
another "Peyton Place." If the average ^viewer goes to 
church, it may not last. 

"The San Pedro Bums" is your typical California 
males frolicking amongst the beach bunnies while 
solving an occasional crime or whatever. All we need is 
Annette and Frankie and we're in business. 

Other ABC hits (ahem) include Redd Foxxin a variety 
series, "The Loveboat" (Love American Style on the 
waterways) and "Operation Petticoat", about army 
nurses on a submarine during World War II. let's hope 
the Nazi's get them quickly. * ■- * 

CBS is injecting its schedule with a heSvy= dose of 
comedy also, but fails to give up entirely oir medicine 
with "Rafferty", starring Patrick McGoohan. Rafferty is 
a blunt doctor who operates periodically and bothers 
people. 

Spinoffs include Ed Asner as Lou Grant (the show goes _ 
by the same tag), and "The"Betty"WTnTe > "Show .-"-"We - 
Have Each Other" is a toned down "All That Glitters" 
with typical role-reversal situations . ^ ^ 

CBS enters the science fiction field with its adaption of 
"Logan's Run." From the previews, we hope he keeps 
going. God only knows what will happen to "Star Wars" 
in years to come. 

The perennial fare of cops, lawyers and adventure can 
be seen on NBC with "Chips", "Rosetti and Ryan", 
"Big Hawaii" and "The Oregon Trail." Nothing 
outstanding, nothing lasting, with the exception of "The 
Richard Pryor Show." Given a chance, it could be good.

The problem of children 
viewing television aimed at the 
adult audience runs a close 
second* to the problems of 
Saturday morning television. 

Violent crime and detective 
shows are watched by people of 
all ages, but are written 
specifically for adults. A survey 
of seventh graders revealed that 
out of a class of 27, 12 said 
"Starsky and Hutch" (ABC) an 
their favorite program. Six said 
"Charlie's Angels" (ABC), as 
their favorite. 



But a class of 20 high school 
seniors revealed a striking 
contrast, for not one of the 20 
mentioned ' ' Starsky and 
Hutch "."Charlie's Angels", 
"Baretta" or "The Six Million 
Dollar Man". 



Instead, they cited such 
programs as "60 Minutes*', 
"NBC's Saturday Night Live" 
and "M*A*S*H". Sex and 
environmental variables meant 
nothing in this survey, for the 
results were constant. 

Age seemed to be the factor, 
for the seventh graders said 
they watched the programs 
because of "neat car chases, 
cars and the excitement of the 
shows,", while the high school 
seniors, leaning heavily towards 
the comedies, said they watched 
television as an escapist 
medium and didn't want to view 
prevalent social problems while 
trying to relax. 

Surprisingly, 19 of the 27 
students in junior high school 
said they were satisfied with the 
television they watched and 
wanted no changes made. Only 
three said they thought there 
was too much violence on 
television. * 

A national survey of child- 
ren's television reported that 71 
percent of children's program- 
ming contained at least one act 
of physical violence. The 



question of whether or not 
television is an instigator of 
children's violence, though, has 
been in debate for years. Gerald 
S. Lesser, in "Children and 
Televisidn-Lessons learned 
from "Sesame Street," states 
that, "By watching televised 
models, children learn both 
socially desirable and undesir- 
able behaviors. 



"Aggressive behavior also is 
affected by viewing televised 
models, but despite the periodic 
public furor over, the effects of 
televised violence, just what 
these effects are is disputed. 

Most educators claim that when 
a child views aggressive 
behavior, he is more likely to 
become aggressive himself. 

Others contend the opposite, 
that the child becomes less 
aggressive. Almost all agree 
that while aggressive models 
induce aggression in many 
viewers, each child responds 
according to his personality, 
and the particular conditions of 
his viewing." 

The main concern among 
advocates of non-violence is 
what the violently stimulated 
child learns from television. 

Various methods of violent 
behavior and technique is 
shown nightly. To the normal, 
passive child, this is unimport- 
ant, but to the media-motivated 
aggressive child, these acts 
merely inflame the aggressive 
urge further and exhibits ways 
he can vent his aggressive 
behavior. 



"Says Lesser,". ..how can 
television show the dangers.... 
without displaying the acts, and 
thereby risking incitement to 
them? Nobody has found a way. 

What remains clear is the 
powerful effects of models in 
influencing learning, whether 
those influences provoke or 
inhibit the behavior of the 
viewer." 

An interesting find by the 
National Commission on the 




Causes and Prevention of 
Violence, in their report 
"Violence and the Media", was 
that, "Boys rated as more 
aggressive in school (but not 
delinquent) were far more likely 
to have violent-oriented televis- 
ion programs as their favorites. 



Further, the more aggressive 
the boy, the more the amount of 
violent TV programs he watched 



regularly. This relationship was 
not found among girls. ' ' 

It is apparent that the amount 
of violence a network views 
depends on how much the 
audience is willing to take. After 
a very thorough investigation, 
the Commission stated in its 
conclusion that, "In the final 
analysis, present network stan- 
dards on portrayals of violence 
are weak because they appear to 
be based on little more than a 



fear of losing viewers. Little 
consideration is given to the 
issue of whether violence is 
indeed necessary to maintain 
dramatic tension in the 
resolution of conflict, and only 
cursory attention is paid to the 
larger question of reducing the 
number of violent programs in 
network entertainment sched- 
ules."

The Whale:gentlegiantof the seas 



PHOTO COURTESY OF WPEC 

The cast of ABC's highly controversial adult comedy, "Soap" which concerns such topics as homosexuality, adultery and nymphomania. 



By Charles Loveday 
Editor 

Cetaceans; whales, porpoises 
and dolphins, are a species of 
highly adapted mammals whose 
entire life is spent in the oceans 
of the world. These creatures 
started in the ocean, moved to 
the land and became huge 
four -legged terrestrial animals, 
they then moved back into the 
sea, which the whales' 
ancestors probably did when 
their habitats were covered by 
the expanding oceans. 

Once the predecessors of the 
cetaceans had returned to an 
aquatic environment, they 
began to go through a series of 
adaptations that would enable 
them to survive in the new 
surrounds. 

The Cetaceans bodies steam- 
lined, their limbs became fins 
and flukes for propulsion and 
manuvering and their breathing 
holes moved to the top of their 
heads or backs enabling them to 
breathe while swimming. 

After these physical changes 
the cetaceans developed a layer 
of oil filled fat to insulate their 
bodies, thus allowing them to 
maintain a steady body 
temperature in cold water. 

Along with protection from 
the cold, the whales developed a 
cooling device in their circula- 
tory system called a "rete". An 



apparatus similar to a radiator, 
a rete is a network of entwined 
viens and arteries that carry 
blood to the flukes and fins. 
There the blubber is thinner and 
heat can dissipate into the 
water. 

Another internal adaption 
that the whales and dolphins 
have renders them capable of 
deep dives and rapid ascents, 
which for suba divers would 
mean a severe case of the 
bends. 

But because whales hold their 
breath the entire dive and take 
in a small amount of air, they do 
not accumulate enough nitrogen 
in their blood to contract the 
bends. This is a real asset for 
cetaceans that must dive to 
great depths in search of food. 

The best example of the deep 
sea feeders is the sperm whale, 
which dives down to depths of 
3,600 ft. in search of its main 
sustenance, the giant squid. 

Although most cetaceans are 
carnivorous, relatively few of 
the great whales are flesh 
eaters. 

Most Great Whales ea 
small shrimp-like crustaceans 
called krill. To eat these sn^l 
creaturesmany whales devel-j/- 
ed the filtering device baleen, 
which is best described as plates 
of a hair-like substance that 
hangs in rows from the roof of 
the mouth. 



By swimming through the 
water mouth open, the 
organisms are separated from 
the water. They are then 
cleaned from the baleen with 
the tongue and swallowed. 

Though each of the charac- 
teristics of cetaceans mentioned 
before has had great impact on 
their evolution, none has had 
more affect on the creatures' 
social and psychological growth 
than their highly developed 
hearing. They have a sense of 
hearing so advanced that most 
scientistsbelieve it to be second 
only to that of bats. 

To understand why hearing 
has had such an impact on 
whales is best described by a 
passage from the book, "The 
Year of The Whale," by Marine 
Biologist Dr. Victor B. Scheffer. 

"Every whale everywhere 
moves in a sea of total sound. 
From the moment of its birth 
until its final hour, day and 
night, it hears the endless 
orchestra of life around its 
massive frame... 

"The snapping and crackling 
of tiny shrimps and crablike 
organisms, the grunting and 
grating of a hundred fishes,.... 
The sad voices of the sea birds 
overhead, the chatter of its own 
companions, the undertone of 
moving water and the drone of 
the wind, all these notes and 
many more come flooding 
through its senses..."

Post 1 2 snares third in nationals 



By Paul Jenkins 
Staff Writer 

West Palm Beach's American 

Legion baseball team, Post 12, 

was finally beaten, but not 

before they had achieved third 

lace in the nation. 



Having been undefeated 
throughout the state and 
regional competition, Post 12 
lost in the opening round of the 
52nd Annual American Legion 
World Series in Manchester, . 
N.H., to Hattiesburg, Miss., 



9-5. They lost again, three 
games later to the same team 
8-6, which ended their bid for 
the national championship. 

Dusty Rhodes, head coach of 
the Pacer's baseball team, and 
an assistant coach for Post 12, 




was very proud of the team's 
accomplishments. 

"The kids from JC were 
standouts," he said, "especially 
Ted Adkins, who pitched a 
super game against the 
defending champions and Scott 
Benedict, who was also 
nominated for Most Valuable 
Player." 

Rhodes said his biggest thrill 
in the Legion playoffs came in 
the Regionats when Post; 12 beat 
Puerto Rico, who had won the 
Regional finals for the last five 
years. 

When asked if he was 
disappointed with the third 
place finish, Rhodes said, "I 
thought we had the best team 
there, but we fell behind so 
quickly in the first game and 
couldn't come back." 

Rhodes pointed out that Post 
12 was the only team whose 
games were not covered bv a 
local radio station. However, lie 
noted that "JC picked up a lot of 
national coverage because the 



other radio announcers gave 
quite a lot of information about 
each player." 

Rhodes said he is looking 
forward to the upcoming Pacer 
season. "This is the best group 
of kids I've ever had coming 
in," he said, "and they're all 
local, which helps us support 
our area high schools. 

"We have a lot going for us 
after doing so well in the 
American Legion, but we have 
lo work harder now because we 
are in one of the toughest 
divisions in the country," he 
added. 

Among those in the Pacer's 
division are Dade South, No. 1 
in the nation most of last year 
and Dade North and Dade 
Downtown, both of whom were 
in the top 12 in the nation last 
year. : 

The Pacer's season opens on 
Sept. 24 with an exhibition 
game. Information on the game 
is to be announced shortly. 



Men's golf team 
preps for opener 

By Jim Swnun 
Staff Writer 

The men's golf team has just organized practices and with a good 
turnout is working hard for the season opener. 

Fifteen golfers turned out for coach Bob Prentiss' first practice. 
Three of them are returners that are assured of scholarships. These 
are Rich Fellenstein, Ken Greenland Kim Swan. 

The remaining twelve golfer? will compete for three additional 
scholarships in a 72 hole tournament that will take place sometime 
next week. The tourney will take place at four different sites and in 
this way each golfer can get a chance of playing on a favorable course. 
The three lowest scorers will receive the scholarships. 

Prentiss feels that there are many good prospects. Among these 
BEARING DOWN- Post 12 pitcher Bob Garrls has a look of determination as he tries to strike out are Peter Amorouso, Rick Croce, Joe Midiri, John Skemp, Doug

NFL teams prepare for long struggle to Super Bowl 




By Jim Goodman 
Sports Editor 

After six weeks of grueling 
preseason play, the National 
Football League is ready to open 
its regular season. 

Many important questions 
were left unanswered by the 
preseason. Can Joe Namath 
lead the Rams to the Super 
Bowl? Is rookie Tony Dorsett 
destined to be a star in his first 
season? Can Oakland defend 
their world title? 

These questions won't be 
answered until the end of the 
season. The one significant fact 
that was revealed during the 
preseason, though, is the 
incredible balance that exists in 
the league this year. 

Over a dozen teams have an 

excellent chance to make the 

. playoffs this year. Half of these 

teams are bonafide Super Bowl 

contenders. 

Most of these contenders 
come from the American 
Football Conference. The AFC 
has achieved superiority over 
the NFC the past few seasons, 
and this season it should be 
even more dominant. 



The AFC Eastern Division 
boasts two of the best offensive 
teams in the NFL. The 
Baltimore Colts led the league 
in total offense and the New 
England Patriots had enough 
firepower to bombard Pitts- 
burgh and Oakland for 30 and 48 
points. 

New England appears to have 
a slightly better defense than 
the Colts, and this should give 
them the edge for the division 
title. 



Unfortunately for local fans it 
appears that the Miami 
Dolphins are to finish third. 
They should break .500 this 
year, and be a title contender 
next season as their young 
players gather experience . 



The Cincinnati Bengals and 
the Pittsburgh Steelers will 
battle for the AFC Central 
Division again this year. 



Pittsburgh has no weaknesses 
at all. They have the best 
defense in the league and a 
high-powered offense which can 
move through the air or on the 
ground. 



Cincinnati's problem seems 
to be that they can beat anybody 
but Pittsburgh. The Steelers 
have defeated Cincinnati five 
consecutive times dating back to 
1974. 

The Bengals have an 



excellent passing game and 
good running backs to give them 
an explosive offense. Their 
defense is improved this year 
because of draft picks Eddie , 
Edwards, and Wilson Whitley. 
They should vastly improve the 
Bengals' defensive line, 



Pittsburgh appears to be the 
favorite in the Central Division 
as their awesome defense 
prevails once again. 

It would be a gross 

understatement to say that the

Pro football- 



continued 



Oakland Raiders are a safe bet 
to win the AFC Western 
Division. There seems to be no 
other way to describe the 
situation. 

The defending Super Bowl 
Champions must fight off 
improved Denver and San 
Diego. The Raiders also face a 
tough schedule that includes 
Minnesota, Los Angeles and 
Pittsburgh. 

Oakland has plenty of talent 
to meet this challenge though 
and should clinch the division 
title by the 10th game of the 
season. 

The National Football Con- 
ference does not have as many 
quality teams as the AFC, but it 
is still competitive. 

The Eastern Division is the 
strongest in the NFC. Dallas 
won this division last year and 
should do the same this season. 
Heralded rookie Tony Dorsett 
has the ability to become an 
instant superstar. This is very 
important to the Cowboys 
because their running game was 
the only weakness they had last 
year. 



Challenging Dallas is St. 
Louis and Washington. Both 
should have successful seasons, 
but St. Louis appears to lack 
defense while Washington lacks 
offense to be division champ- 



The Minnesota Vikings have 
pratically owned the NFC 
Central Division for the past 
decade. A new champion should 
arise this year in the form of the 
Chicago Bears. 

The Bears are a young club 
who surprised everyone last 
year by compiling a record of 
7-7. They also boast a superstar 
on both offense and defense. 

Walter Payton led the NFC in 
rushing last year with 1390 
yards. Wally Chambers is 
considered by some experts to 
be the best defensive lineman in 
the league. 

Both of them should help the 
Bears edge the aging Vikings in 
a race which could go down to 
the wire. 

The big question on the west 
coast this year is if Joe Namath 
can lead the Los Angeles Rams 



to a Super Bowl Championship. 
Everyone has already conce- 
ded the NFC Western Division 
title to them. And why not? All 
the Rams have lacked the past 
few seasons is leadership at the 
quarterback position. 

Pat Haden, who quarterback- 
ed the Rams last year, has not 
lost his starting role yet. The 
competition between Haden and 
Namath should benefit the team 
and give Los Angeles their best 
shot at the NFL title. 

It's a fact that only eight 
teams will make it to the 
playoffs. Predicting who those 
teams are is an educated guess 
at best. So here are my guesses: 

Dallas, Chicago, and Los 
Angeles should be the division 
winners in the NFC. St. Louis 
should also make it as the 
wildcard team. 

In the AFC there is New 
England, Pittsburgh and Oak- 
land along with Baltimore as the 
wildcard team. 

The Super Bowl should 
feature Pittsburgh defeating Los 
Angeles in a low scoring 
contest. 




Sweet demands another election 



A petition calling for another 
election, as to whether 
instructors want to be represen- 
ted by the United Faculty (UF), 
has been circulated. 

Two reasons for the petition 
are: UF's trying to pass 
legislation requiring all instruc- 
tors to pay dues, even if they do 
not want to be represented by 
the union; and because UF has 
been "guilty of questionable, if 
not unprofessional conduct' ' in 
their bargaining for the faculty, 
or bargaining unit. 



Ramond W. Sweet, mathe- 
matics instructor and writer of 
the petition, stated, "This is not 
a pro-administration or an 
anti-union petition." He ex- 
plained that it is only to find out 
if instructors want UF as a 
representative. 

Sweet, speaking of the 
union's ability to bargain for 
instructors said, "The union, in 
my mind, has no power at all." 
Also, Sweet said, "I am going to 
be accused of a lot of things by a 



lot of people because of the 
petition." 

Also instrumental in the 
petition were Robert L. Book, 
Engineering and Engineering 
Graphics instructor, and Ed- 
ward J. Crowley, Communica- 
tions and English instructor. 

Both were involved in the 
primary discussions, and Book 
was responsible for much of the 
"leg work". 

For another election the first 
being when UF was voting as 



representative of the faculty in 
75,to be held, 30 per cent of the 
bargaining unit is required to 
sign the petition. 

Sweet explained that the 
petition is no longer being 
circulated because the number 
of signatures required has been 
met. 

The petition will now be sent 
to the Public Employees 
Relations Committee (PERC) for 
confirmation of signatures and 
scheduling of the election. 



When asked why she thought 
Sweet wrote the petition, UF 
president Maxine Vignau said, 
"Perhaps he is sincere, perhaps 
he is trying to ingratiate himself 
with the incoming administra- 
tion and perhaps he, like many 
people, expects too much from 
the union too soon." 

Alternatives to union repre- 
sentation, in the event the union 
loses faculty support by the 
election, have not been 
proposed by Sweet

SG senate election 
guidelines set forth 



By Dave Taylor 
Associate Editor- News 

Student Government (SG) 
senate elections are to be held 
Sept. 22 and 23 in front of the 
cafeteria (on patio). 

Twenty-six applications were 
filed last Wednesday. They are: 
Jane Armstrong, Ana Bacas, 
Pat Bagley, Robert Calamunci, 
Dave Coakley, Katie Cooke, 
Maurice Gaffney, Mi.chael 
Gurklis, Kimberly Kendrick, 
Victor Martinez, Terry Mauney, 
Belinda McGill, Sonny Nyman, 
Vernelle Patrick, Deatrice 
Patterson, Dean Ringdahl, 
Thomas Romano, Rose Marie 
Satchell, Thomas Tetroult, 
Farley Thompson, Joseph 
Turner, Edward Waldron, Ben 
Walters, and Jerry Wildman. 

Election guidelines are as 
follows: 

1. Students may vote for as 
many candidates as they wish, 
not to exceed 24. 

2. "Elected Senators" will be 
those with numerically superior 
vote-counts. 

3. In case a tie (or ties), the 
duly "elected" senators will fill 
remaining vacancies from 
among the tied candidates. 



4. The Executive Branch of 
SG will serve as the 
"Committee on Credentials" to 
certify the validity of the 
elections, 

5. There will be no 
person-to-person or printed 
media campaigning by the 
candidates or their agents 
within 50 feet of the polling 

■ location . 

a. Failure to comply can result 
in a candidate's name being 
withdrawn at the discretion of 
the Committee on Credentials. 

"I think we are going to have 
a good turnout, hopefully no 
less than 40 per cent of the 
student body," stated VicePres. 
Ronald Pugh. 

The senators' main function 
will be to represent the student 
body, make resolutions and plan 
future activities. 

"SG this year will be 
whatever the senators want to 
make it, along with cooperation 
and ideas from the Executive 
Board. There are a lot of 
possibilities. This year we are 
off to a good start by at least 
having elections," said SG 
president, Sharon Christenbury.

UF bypass plan hits legal snag 



United Faculty's (UF) move to bypass special 
master proceedings has been met by the 
administration's statement that this action will not 
be in compliance with bargaining laws, 

"We have serious concern that the union, by 
refusing to follow this matter through in the 
manner prescribed by law, may be violating its 
legal duty to represent the unit employees," stated 
attorney Jesse Hogg, chief administration 
negotiator, maintaining "the law does not provide 
for bypassing, or for any method of resolving the 
bargaining impasse which exists, apart from the 
statutory mandated special master proceeding, 
followed by a Board of Trustees' action which 
would take into account the special master's 
recommended resolution of impasse issues." 



If the special master proceedings are 
circumvented and n resolution is reached, Hogg 
feels faculty members and taxpayers could take 
legal action on the grounds that their right to fair 
representation has been violated. 

"They can throw up all the smoke screens they 
want about saving money... but that doesn't make 
it legal," said President Harold C. Manor. 

UF President Maxine Vignau stated, "That is 
Mr. Hogg's interpretation of the law. "Why don't 
we wait for an interpretation from the Public 
Employees Relations Committee (PERC)?" 

"The law is not quite like Hogg said. It is open to 
interpretation," said Vignau. She continued, "If 
PERC docs not feel obligated to appoint a special 
master then the next step will be to go before the 
Board of Trustees." 



If community - JC cooperate can 
make cultural-arts center possible 



By Emily Hamer 
Editor 

Construction of a Performing 
Arts Center at JC might soon be 
underway with cooperation of 
the community and JC. 

President-elect Dr. Edward 
Eissey is attempting to obtain 
from the Palm Beach County 
Commission (PBCC), local city 
commissions and chambers of 
commerce needed financial and 
moral support to build the 
center. 

If the PBCC floats a revenue 
bond and it passes, or the 
county and city commissioners 
budget jointly for the center, it 
obuld become a reality within a 
year. 

"I am convinced that we can 
have a happy marriage between 
the community and college," 
commented Eissey, adding that 
the more the community gets 
involved with the college, and 



the college with community, the 
more each can do. 

Joint building of a Performing 
Arts Center would save 
duplication of money, equip- 
ment, effort and administration, 
says Eissey. 

Once built on either JC 
central or North campus, 
financial responsibility for the 
center will fall indirectly upon 
the state, through JC budget- 
ing. 

Estimated costs for the center 
total $12 million. It is to include 



a 3000-seat auditorium; a 
700-seat auditoriurn for educa- 
tional purposes and small 
productions; an art gallery" and, 
Eissey hopes, a restaurant in 
which food management stu- 
dents can gain experience. 

Eissey has arranged a Sept. 
29 meeting with local mayors 
and Chamber of Commerce 
presidents to discuss the center. 

He also plans to explain to the 
public' through speaking en- 
gagements and slides what the 
center can do for the 
community.

One of the most frequently

in his ease, because they were 
between 17 and 19 years of age.

Since its inception in 1974,

Wrong people attacked 

Bargaining: a teacher right 

Collective bargaining has become a national pastime. Vital 
services have been hampered more than once, 

When this fails we get the strikes, walkouts, sit-downs — 
whatever the name — as a show of force to obtain benefits not 
otherwise available. No profession is immune. Doctors used it to 
protest malpractice insurance rates. Workers in hospitals, 
communications, sanitation, police and fire departments have used 
union systems for bettering their working conditions and gaining 
higher pay. 

Of all these groups, only one has been singled out for attack by 
Dr. Peter Everett, president of the Florida School Board Assn. 
(FSBA) in Tallahassee. (An item on this subject was reprinted from 
Palm Beach Post in our Sept. 9 issue.) 

It is hard to believe that FSBA can ignore union activity in other 
essential areas to launch such a bitter attack on teachers. 
Unreasonable prejudice is shown when he urged the commission to 
alter the state constitution. He suggested that the law "prohibit 
employees of district school systems from forming or joining a 
union," and to "ban collective bargaining." 

Is it more palatable for a fireman to watch a home burn to the 
ground? Or a policeman to ignore a call for help? 

Everett's goal may be commendable, but his methods are all 
wrong. In his desire to stabilize our economy he attacks the wrong 
people. 

Taxpayers groan in pain at inflation, but teachers also are 
taxpayers. They struggle to make ends meet just like the rest of us. 
They should not be singled out in any fight against inflation. We 
wonder if Everett has forgotten his own economic situation as an 
administrator. He does not need to bargain for cost-of-living 
increases. 

Far better would be a concerted effort to flatten out the spiral of 
inflation and keep cost of living at a decent level. He would have 
served the people better if he could keep our medical costs, our 
taxes, our food and utilities within reason. Then no one would need 
to demand wage increases. 

As it now stands, big business reaps enormous profits from 
soaring charges. Consumers continue to be losers. This may be free 
enterprise, but the results are in no way democratic.

Alternate plan for fuel charge 
suggested by engineering student 



Dear Editor, 

FPL has recently come up 
with their so-called solution to 
solve excessive energy con- 
sumption. They stated this 
would solve their problem 
without too much hardship on 
the energy consumer. The 
solution was a rate increase for 
that portion over 750 kwh used 
by the consumer. 

Now we hear that because of 
the public's interest in reducing 
their consumption of electricity, 
and therefore paying a 
reasonable charge, they feel 
that they will have to raise their 
rates again. Where does it stop! 
We have been subjected to rate 
increases, fuel surcharges, etc. 



for the past couple of years. 
Now, let us get to the bottom of 
the problem. 

Sure, the price of oil, 
construction, and other com- 
modities have gone up and 
these costs have to be covered 
by the consumer. But, what 
consumer? The large corpora- 
tions that use excessive power 
like Pratt and Whitney, IBM, 
etc., get reduced rates for their 
high consumption of power to 
attract their business, but the 
poor home owner who wants air 
conditioning in his home suffers 
for excessive use over 750 kwh. 

• Why? Well, FPL wants to 
attract investors and to do so

they have to make it profitable 
for investors. Show me when 
FPL has not paid dividends, and 
interest to their investors. 
Worry about the investor, not 
the homeowner whose bill for 
power is now approaching his 
monthly mortgage payment. If it 
were not for the general 
consumer, they wouldn't have 
to worry too much about power 
consumption . 

Power production like any 
other business is a profit and 
loss operation. But I have not 
seen FPL suffer any losses, just 
profit to the investor. A majority 
of the investors don't even live 
in Florida and know nothing of 
the problems the consumers of 
power suffer. 

Why don't we turn the ball 
around and give the consumer a 
little power and profit. Set up a 
reasonable rate structure and 
surcharge to cover fuel 
increases and then add let's say 
a $5 stock investment. If you 
have 3 million people using their 
services, this would increase^., 
their working capital by $15 
million a month. When the 
consumer reaches a stock 
investment equal to a share of 
stock, he is issued said stock. 
This way people who use the 
power would be more consider- 
ate of its usage, because they 
have invested in it and are part 
owners of FPL. They could also 
vote on changes in company 
policy that would affect them 
both as consumers and 
investors, and have no one but 
themselves to blame if they 
voted wrong on an issue. Think 
it over, it could work! 

Bill Hayes 



The rise and fall of an empire can be marked by its treatment of 
fine arts and philosophy. When arts and rhetoric flourish the rise 
occurs. When the physical level is reached, then a downhill trend is 
inevitable. 

During the golden age of Greece, for example, great orators, 
philosophers, poets, urtisls and literature were encouraged and 
supported. Great minds produced a groat nation. 

The turning point in lis greatness came when entertainment and 
physical prowess became criteria for worth. Emphasis shifting to this 
direction caused a detrimental climate for mental achievements and It 
was downhill from there on. 

Such a trend seems to be surlae ig at JC. Our penk of achievement 
may be over, if the current trend away from Intellectual support is 
continued. 

Our fine arts, communication ...Jlls, mental and personality 
development sections are .suffer ,t t ; many cutbacks in course 
offerings. In contrast, our athletic programs continue to enjoy full, 
unqualified support, 

In recent years many talented studcMH ii.ive started from here and 
gone on to fame and prominence. At -'mm time we provided the 
impetus and help to develop their specie jiifts, 

Our forensic department produced a national champion last year. 
Trent Steele is a talented young man who polish d his skills here. A 
national championship is an impressive feat. 

The student newspaper, the Beachcomber, brought home honors 
from state and national competitions. As Ail-American, we won two 
national awards, and was the highest rated junior college publication 
in our state. 

These accomplishments were accepted by administration in a 
matter-of-fact way that nobaligame victory ever received. 

Our drama department can claim several famous actors as former 
students. Burt Reynolds and Monte Markham are proof of our former 
effectiveness. 

Managing editor for Palm Beach Post Sam Pepper is a former 
Beachcomber editor. Other past staff members have found places for 
themselves in local and national media. 

Our own president-elect Dr. Ed. Eissey was also associated with 
the student newspaper while he attended JC. This is the caliber of 
student who seeks to work on the paper. 

At the peak of our achievement — generating honors for the school 
and the scholar. Then began the decline. 

Shifting emphasis away from our finer programs means handicaps 
„ and endangered situations for excellent activities closely connected 
with classrooms. 

John Connolly, outstanding forensic adviser, has no release time 
for the fall term. Debate and speech are not considered of value, 
evidently, by our president. 

Yet these skills are the basis for success in many important 
vocations and personal enrichment for everyone else, Administration 
finds them expendable. 

The Beachcomber is in a precarious position with an uncertain 
future. Because this paper represents the students and is their sole 
outlet, the threat to the future of our publication is a direct blow to the 
students. 

Appeals to administration for greater backing and expanded 
curriculum has not met with any success. 

Monies continue to flow freely Into the stalemated bargaining while 
our programs are slashed. Must the students be made to pay for the 
lengthy and fruitless union-management quarrel? 

If attitudes do not change, then the golden age of achievement for 
JC is surely coming to an end.

OCEAN DUNES- The root systems of sea oats and other Sand dunes serve as a better protection for the land than do sea 
vegetation along Juno Beach help to anchor sand dunes in place, walls. "* 

Florida's beaches eroding away 



By Kathy Cavanaugh 
Staff Writer 

To many, the beach is a 
place for sunbathing, swim- 
ming and relaxing. It is a 
place for meeting the sea in 
solitude and allowing the 
restless waters to placate a 
troubled soul. 

Still, the beach is also an 
array of intricate ecosystems 
which exist to provide a 
protective interface between 
the sea and the land. Sand 
dunes comprise part of this 
magnificent interface. 

The interface has the 
ability to replenish its sand 
dunes if a storm were to 
temporarily erode the dune. 
But the beach cannot 
undertake that natural activ- 
ity when man tampers with 
the shoreline's order of 
nature. 

All 1,266 miles of Florida's 
shoreline once possessed 
sand dunes that held a 



reserve supply of sand to be 
drawn upon in times of 
severe eroson. The waves 
would take the extra sand 
with them as they made their 
way back into the shallower 
depths of the sea which 
would create more shoreline. 
An excellent example of 
that process can be observed 
in the undeveloped sections 
of Juno Beach where sea 
oats, seagrapes and other 
flora exist. Their root 
systems hold together im- 
portant reserves of sand 
which form dunes. 

(Note: If sea oats are 
picked, as many are, their 
entire root system dies thus 
allowing a portion of the 
dune to erode more readily. 

Nowadays, seawalls and 
condominiums are increas- 
ingly replacing the natural 
dunes. The seawalls were 
built to "protect the land" 
when in reality the dune 



serves as a better form of 
protection for the land than 
does the wall. 

The reason for this is 
because the seawall has no 
grains of sand with which the 
ocean can draw upon to 
rebuild its shore. 

Condominiums are built on 
leveled sand dunes. Conse- 
quently, the condominiums 
strip the shoreline of not only 
most of its natural defenses 
against wind and water 
erosion, but also of its 
asthetic beauty. 

Miami Beach presently 
has a very serious beach 
eroson problem because, 
according to Andy Hobbs of 
the Army Corps of Engin- 
eers, many beach front 
property owners built too 
close to the water line and 
dune lines were not 
preserved. 

Says Dr. Peter Pritchard of 



Vending machines are intelligent 



the Florida Audubon Society, 
"Human ^development of 
beaches Would be practiced 
with extreme caution, and 
the wise planner feels about 
beaches much the same way 
as tourists feel about New 
York- a nice place to visit but 
I wouldn't propose to live 
there." 

It is important for those 
who do waflt to live on the 
beach, as wellsas for those 
who merely visit it, that a 
total of 110 million dollars 
has been or is being spent in 
Florida to restore its beaches 
and to combat beach erosion 
caused by both man and 
storm. 

However, it must be 
realized that man will have a 
difficult time competing with 
nature's unique way of 
righting wrongs induced by 
either man or storm that 
have been imposed to 
shorelines.

The city of Boston has 
produced three highly success- 
ful and diverse rock groups: The 
J. Geils Band, Boston and the 
subject of this article, Aero- 
smith. 

In terms of record sales and 
concert attendance, they have 
surpassed many of the currently 
popular rock groups such as ZZ 
Top, Kiss and Lynyrd Skynyrd. 

The Aerosmith story began in 
the quiet town of Sunapee, New 
Hampshire. After a few years of 
scuffling in obscure bands, 
former drummer Steven Tyler 
walked into a night club called 
The Barn. There he met future 
Aerosmith members Joe Perry 
(lead guitar) and Tom Hamilton 
(bass), who were performing in 
the bar. 

The three musicians decided 
to pool their talents and start a 
new band, with Tyler singing 
and drumming at the same 
time. But after a few gigs they 
felt that Tyler should become 
lead singer, so he got 
schoolmates Joey Kramer 
(drums) and Ray Tabano 
(rhythm guitar) to complete the 
band, but Tabano pulled out and 
current guitarist Brad Whitford 
took over his. spot. 

But Sunapee was not the 
place for rock and roll band to 
begin its career, so they moved 
to a house in Boston where they 
practiced, lived and starved 
together. 

After playing the local bar 
scene for a year, Steve Paul 
(noted New York agent and 
promoter) saw them and asked 
them to open for his client, 
Edgar Winter, at a local concert. 

That gig led to a one week run 
at Max's Kansas City, a popular 
New York night spot. At Max's, 
Clive David, then head of 
Columbia Records, saw them 
and signed them to a contract in 
1972. 



Soon after, their first album, 
"Aerosmith", was released in 
early 1973. To help sell the 
album, they toured the 
Northeast and the Great Lakes 
region extensively. They were 
already a cult band in Boston, so 
the l.p. sold reasonably well. 
From the album, "Dream on"- 
became a regional hit single and 
established Aerosmith in the 
Northern part of the country, 
but nowhere else. 

In March of 1974, their 
second album, "Get Your 
Wings," was released. The 
album did not sell much better 
than the first. 

They toured for a solid year 
until June of 1975 when "Toys 
in the Attic" came out, only bow 
"Dream On" had become a 
national hit. This single and an 
important nation wide tour 
(which grossed 1.5 million 
dollars) helped to make "Toys" 
their first gold, then platinum 
album. This in turn increased 
the sales of the previous two 
albums, they too, gold. 

In the spring of 1976, 
"Rocks" was released. The L.P. 
was shipped to the record stores 
as a gold album and then 
platinum. Just after its release, 
the group embarked on a 58-city 
tour. 

One of the stops was at the 
Miami Jai-alai Fronton on May 
17 of last year. This tour proved 
to be one of the most successful 
tours of 1976. It had the record 
industry buzzing because of the 
use of a new lighting designs 
and because the group 
consistently drew sell-out 
crowds at each concert. 

They sold out 20,000 seats at 
Madison Square Garden, drew 
85,000 people to a concert at 
Pontiac Stadium in Michigan, 
and ended the tour with 56,800 
people in attendance at 
Anaheim Stadium. There, Jeff 
Beck joined them on stage for 
three encores. They played to 
ecstatic crowds when they

toured Europe and Japan this 
past summer and are presently 
touring the U.S. with their new 
album, "Down The Line". 

Three men are partly 
responsible for the phenomenal 
success of Aerosmith, their 
managers, Steve Leber and 
David Krebs, and their record 
producer, Jack Douglas. Leber 
& Krebs Inc. used the tactic of 
having the young group open for 
week on down-sliding headlin- 
es like Blue Oyster Cult, REO 
Speedwagon or Mott the 



Hoople. 

In this way, those weak bands 
would be easy victims for 
Aerosmith* s aggressive punch 
and they ended up stealing the 
show from the headliner. 

The formula of clean, crisp 
production, recording by Jack 
Douglas and the Anglo-Ameri- 
can styled hard rock of 
Aerosmith has resulted in these 
amazing statistics: Every week, 
any given Aerosmith album 
sells between 50,000 and 
100,000 copies across, the 



nation; each of their albums has 
become a platinum disc (over a 
million copies sold); and the 
total Aerosmith catalog of 
albums and singles has sold 
between 5.5 and 6 million 
copies, 

This incredible success has 
assured Aerosmith a place in 
rock music hierarchy; following 
in the footsteps of The Stones 
and Led Zeppelin in their legacy 
of commercially successful hard 
rock. 



Cinema racism fades overyears 



By Maurice Gaffney 
Staff Writer 

The history of Blacks in the cinema is, with few 
exceptions, a prolonged period of stereo types and 
distortion. 

In the beginning the serious Black artist was 
given only demeaning roles that not only made him 
look bad, but Black people as a whole. And strange 
as it may seem, at the time this was what white 
America wanted. 

It all began back in 1902 with George Melies, 
who produced a silent comedy that stereotyped 
Blacks as superstitious slaves and white slave 
owners as gentle paladins. Unfortunately, this 
marked the debut of racism on the screen. 

And for many years to come these types of 
movies were displayed across the screen in the 
name of entertainment with such films as "Uncle 
Tom's Cabin," "The Masher", and "Birth of a 
Nation," regarded as the greatest mythmonger of 
them all. 

Oscar Micheaux emerged from the protest as the 
first Black film maker, touring the nation with his 
scripts. By this method, he persuaded theatre 
managers to give an advanced booking. Then he 
would go back to New York and shoot his film. 

He promoted most his films by car, and is 
credited with having made the first full length, all 
Black film, "Birthright", as early as 1918. For the 
next 20 years, Micheaux shot and sold a film a year 
without bureaucratic support or studio censor. He 
opened the door for Black actors. 

In terms of stardom and positive roles, Paul 
Roberson is considered the first Black star in the 
cinema. Roberson, a law school graduate, member 
of Phi Beta Kappa, actor-singer-orator, starred in 



the film version of Eugene O'Neil's "Emperor 
Jones." 

In 1939, "Gone With The Wind" came to the 
screen, starring Clark Gable. Hattie McDaniel won 
an oscar as best supporting actress. It was the first 
time in the history of motion picture that a black 
person was so honored for a performance. 

After World War II the reels of progress turned 
faster. In 1949, "Home of the Brave" starred 
James Edwards as a Black soldier, the victim of 
military bigotry. 

In 1950 came Juano Hernandez in "Intruder In 
The Dust," portraying a southerner accused of 
killing a bigot. Hernandez gave a gripping 
performance that not only affected the characters 
in the film, but caused sympathy from audiences 
as well. 

And in years to come more Black actors and 
actressesstarred in movies such as "No Way Out" 
starring Sidney Poitier, "The Jackie Robinson 
Story," Richard Wright's "Native Sons," "The 
Joe Louis Story," Mary Vernon's "See How They 
Run", "Carmen Jones," for which Dorothy 
Dandridge received a best actress nomination, and 
Harry Belafonte's "Odds against Tomorrow." 

By 1968 Sidney Poitier had establishes himself 
as the number one box office attraction in the U;S. 
and Canada. He then became president of Harbel, 
the first major Black producer. 

Today Black actors' and actresses' names and 
faces are known throughout the U.S. and around 
the world, Diana Ross, Billy Dee Williams, Ossie 
Davis, Ruby Dee, Max Julien, Vonetta McGee, 
Lou Gossett, LeVar Burton, Cicely Tyson, Diahann 
Carroll, and many others whose talent, power and 
beauty has not only changed the nature of 
American films, but also helped stay the industry 
from financial ruin.

Collection of autographs on display 



When the opportunity arises, almost everyone is quick to grab an 
autograph. Perhaps it's a sports figure, an up and coming superstar 
or a politician, just a little something to show the kids when they 
grow up. 

JC communications instructor Arthur Schneider started out with 
one autograph when he was ten. He now has a collection of more 
than 1,500. An exhibit of the literary portion of his collection is 
currently on display in the library, 2nd floor. 

Schneider's autographs mainly are from literary and musical 
personalities. His favorite is Lor Tennyson, but his more rare 
autographs include Sir John Stainer's on an unpublished piece of 
music he wrote. 

"I've met a large portion of the people whose autographs I 
have," said Schneider. "In fact, I've gotten a lot of the autographs 
merely by writing to the people and asking them for their 
signature." 

Several of the old autographs in his collection were purchased 
from dealers or bought at auctions. "There are several authors and 
musicians of the 17th century that I would like to get, but nobody 
contemporary. They're not that interesting." 

Schneider's collection includes such people as Norman Mailer, 
Agatha Christie and Beverly Sills. The exhibit will be changed to 
autographs of a musical background next month. 

Walks constructed 
to aid handicapped 



JC has installed a walkway 
with special ramps and eight 
additional parking spaces for 
the handicapped on the south 
side of the campus. 

Construction, stalled last 
week because of the heavy 
rains, was completed Wednes- 
day; this increases the number 
of 12-ft.-wide spaces to 15. In 
addition, JC has eight standard 
sized reserved spaces for those 
with lesser disabilities. 

Handicapped bumper stickers 
are to be issued by campus 



security supervisor Grant Bar- 
tels. "We try to cooperate in 
every way possible with 
handicapped students. We 
provide them with parking 
places as convenient as possible 
to their classrooms," Bartels 
continued. "As time goes by, if 
we Find that more wider spaces 
are needed, we will add more. " 

Non-handicapped persons 
using these spaces at JC are 
subject to a $5 fine and will have 
their car towed away at their 
own expense, he warned.

PTK leadership conference 
discusses apathy problems 




By Kathy Cavanaugh 
Staff Writer 

The Phi Theta Kappa September 10 Leadership 
Conference held in Orlando provided PTK officers 
with an opportunity to learn about their own 
leadership abilities, as well as have an opportunity 
to discuss chapter problems among the other 
officers of various PTK chapters around the state 
of Florida. 

The number one problem voiced by all chapters 
was that of "apathy". Officers said they had low 
attendence at meetings in addition to small 
numbers of people working on projects. 

Roselee Kelley, Florida Advisor of PTK who 
conducted the Conference, suggested a way to 
alleviate the apathy. 

"Let positive statements take the place of 
negative statements by saying, 'I can try and do 
that' instead of saying, 'I can't do that'." Kelley 
added that this may accomplish more things 
getting done. 

Another problem was cited by Eta Nu, the 



chapter at St. Petersburgh JC. They said that Eta 
Nil was not fully recognized around their campus 
or community. Therefore, they did crazy things 
that they called "attention getters' ' . 

One "attention getter" involved filling a car on 
campus with peanuts. People would then guess 
how many peanuts the car contained. If their guess 
came close, they won a prize. 

"Anything that can draw attention will be useful 
in letting others know that you (PTK) exist!" said 
Eta Nu ' s secretary . 

Kelley distributed a leadership questionnaire to 
the PTK officers in order to discover what type of 
leader they are considered to be. 

Questions such as: "Would you tolerate 
postponement and uncertainty?", "Would you act 
without consulting the group you are leading?" 
and ' 'Would you settle conflicts when they occur in 
the group?". All allowed the officers to discover 
things about themselves that they perhaps never 
knew existed, 



Diabetes still a killer disease 



While cancer, heart disease 
and other well-known maladies 
are more deadly, diabetes 
remains a scourge to humanity. 

Before the advent of the use 
of insulin in 1922, those severely 
stricken with the disease died 
after a prolonged illness. Even 
today, no cure is known. 

Striking normally during 
youth or at the onset of old age 
(mainly before fifty), symptoms 



include constant urination, 
general weakness, loss of 
weight, increased appetitie and 
excessive itching. 

Affecting more women than 
men, particularly during old 
age, Physicians believe that the 
younger the age at which the 
disease is acquired the more 
severe. Hygeine is extremely 
important for people with the 
disease, especially around the

feet because of a greatly 
increased danger of infection. 

According to studies, nine out 
of ten people who develop the 
disease are overweight. Among 
those stricken, dieting and 
return to normal weight lessens 
the severity of the symptoms 
and sometimes controls the 
condition. 

Diabetes has been known for 
thousands of years. The Chinese 
and Greeks, principally concer- 
ned with the large amounts of 
fluid secreted by the body, 
described it. Diabetes derives

Soccer squad waits for insurance 



By Jim Goodman 
Sports Editor 

The soccer team which is being formed 
at JC is all set to go except for one major 
obstacle. There are many members of the 
squad who do not have insurance. 

Math instructor Dennis Albers, who is 
sponsoring the soccer team, said that a 
request for insurance has been made and 
he must wait for a reply before any 
further steps can be taken, 



Esmail Shahrezaei and Gino Jiminez 
are the two students who formed the 
team. They also coach the squad. 

There are 22 players competing on the 
squad. Jiminez said about 14 of them 
have quite a bit of experience. 

"We're young and a little out of 
shape," Jiminez said, "but with a lot of 
practice, I feel we could be one of the top 
three teams in the league (Palm Beach 
County Soccer League) . " 



So far the team has been practicing 
three days a week at South Olive Park. 
Jiminez and Shahrezaei want to use the 
west field here at JC. 

Dr. Howard Reynolds, Athletic 
Director, said the squad could use the 
field as long as they do not form a team 
representing the college. 

"Unless all the players have insurance, 
we cannot be responsible for injuries." 
Reynolds said, "If all the players get 



insurance, I would be glad to have them 
representing the college in the soccer 
league." 

The problem is that few of the foreign 
athletes on the team have insurance and 
they've got to get some kind of 
coverage ," he added . 

The league begins the season in 
mid-October and Jiminez and Shahrezaei 
hope to have the insurance problem 
settled by then.

Fall baseball begins 

By Paul Jenkins 
Staff Writer 

The baseball team held its first two intrasquad games and the 
"Green team" (scholarship players) easily defeated the "Away 
team" (non-scholarship players), 8-1 and 4-1. 

When asked about the games coach Dusty Rhodes said, "The score 
doesn't mean anything. I just wanted to see if there were any of the 
walk-ons (non-scholarship players) capable of sticking with the team." 

Rhodes felt that one of the players who looked very sharp was Scott 
Benedict. 

He was impressive at the plate, and also showed why he was 
nominated for MVP in the American Legion World Series with some 
fine defensive plays including a couple of strong throws to second 
base which nailed the runners trying to steal. 

• • • • 

The baseball team received bad news when it was learned that one 
of their outfielders, Jim Wilkenson, had been forced to drop out of 
school because of a virus. 

Coach Rhodes was distressed by the news but saw a way around his 
problem. "I will probably move an infielder into the outfield." he 
said. 

Despite the loss of Wilkenson, the general feeling on the team is 
very optimistic. 

Catcher Scott Benedict said, "We should win it all this year. 

"We've got good pitching, hitting and a strong defense. If we play 
together I don't see anything or anyone stopping us." 

Pitcher Ted Adkins also shares that view. "We should be No. 1," 
Adkins said, "Bob Shaw (former major leaguer) is going to help us 
this year and he's really good with pitchers. He should give us a big 
boost." 

Adkins figures to be one of the Pacers top pitchers this year. Last 
year he ended his first season on the team with a 4-2 record as a spot 
starter and reliever. 



Inramural bowling league 
rolls into 2nd week of play 



By Jim Swann 
Staff Writer 

The Intramural bowling 
season has begun once again. 
The season opened last Wed. at 
the Major League Lanes in Lake 
Worth. The turnout was good 
enough to have a considerable 
amount of team competition. 

Coming through the first day 
of men's competition with flying 
colors was the faculty team of 
Bill Flory, Marty Hartman, Joe 
Lesko and Glenn Marsteller. 
Designated for now as team no. 
5, the faculty men have a 4-0 
record and the early lead in the 
standings. 

Team no. 4, consisting of Ed 
Breese, Kent Knox, and Brian 
Richards, captured both the 
high team game and high team 
series with scores of 682 and 
1915. Knox also had the 
individual high game and high 
series with scores of 206 and 
586. 

The ladies also had a full 
afternoon of bowling action. 
Team no. 3 which consists of 
Ellen Andersen, Jerri McCon- 
key, Jeri Moore and Diana 
Zaskowski took the early team 
lead with a 4-0 record for the 
day. 

Team no. 3 also captured the 
high team game and series for 
the day with scores of 522 and 
1512. Jerri McConkey, a 
member of team no. 3, had the 



high individual game and series 
with a 182 and 499. 
• • • • 

There is a meeting for all 
potential flag-tag football play- 
ers on Sept. 27 at 2:30 p.m. in 
the gym. Rules are to be 
covered and team competition 
set up. Students interested in 
officiating should also attend. 
Entries for this sport should be 
turned into the intramural office 
by Sept. 27. 



Trophies for the punt, pass, 
and kick contest are to be 
awarded on Mon. Sept. 19 at 3 
p.m. in the gym. 

The winners from the 
competition are Ellen Anderson, 
Jim Norwicki, Jim Bradie, 
Bryan Leth, Kevin McDaniel, 
Robert Mounts, Corinne Plante, 
Joyce Richardson and John 
Shrewsberry. 



Wrestling team forms 

By Jim Swann 
Staff Writer 

A wrestling club is being formed and members seem quite 
optimistic towards its future. 

The task of getting organized is being undertaken by freshman 
Marvin James, a graduate of Lake Worth High School. James, in his 
three years at Lake Worth, compiled a record of 75-5 and has great 
knowledge of the sport. 

Practice sessions began on Sept. 12 at the Lake Worth high gym 
and will take place every Mon., Tues. and Thurs. from 6 p.m. to 8 
p.m. 

Previous attempts at organizing a wrestling club failed because of a 
lack of dedication and interest. James feels that this is not the case 
this year. 

The club members have had considerable previous wrestling 
experience. "It makes it easier when you have guys who already 
know the basics. That way you can move right into more advanced 
techniques," he commented. 

Helping James out are Jim Swann, another former Lake Worth 
wrestler, and coach Sam Agresti, his former coach. 

Plans for matches are just being made and James hopes to get 
other junior colleges to come and compete with the club. "With the 
experience we have on this club, it would be quite advantageous for 
them to wrestle us, " he said.

Board approves funding for pools 



By Emily Hamer 
Editor 

Board of Trustees (BOT) 
members at the September 
meeting approved a resolution 
to obtain funding for construc- 
tion of three swimming pools to 
be located at schools and 
campus sites in Palm Beach 
County. 

Estimated construction costs 
are $2,400,000. The Board of 
County Commissioners has 
agreed to budget $800,000 and 
Chapter 235.211 of the Florida 
Statutes enables the Florida 
Legislature to fund two-thirds of 
the cost if it deems appropriate. 



All three pools are to be built 
from the same plan, similar to 
the Lake Lytal pool. They will 
provide thousands of county 
residents with water safety 
instruction, recreation, activit- 
ies for the handicapped and 
physical education classes. 

Carroll Peacock, of Peacock 
and Lewis Architects Inc., 
presented schematics for Phas- 
es I and II of the North campus, 
which the Board approved. 



Buildings planned for Phase I 
include two classrooms, a 
learning resources center, 
science center, amphitheater 
and mechanical building. 

The architects designed the 
campus to be built on 110 acres 
off PGA Blvd., around natural 
growth of the site. Natural 
lighting and ventilation is 
featured, giving the campus an 
earthy feeling. 

Estimated construction and 
site development costs total 
$10,295,000. 

An agreement for the 
building of JC facilities on FAU 
campus made between the BOT 
and Florida Board of Regents 
provides ground rules concern- 
ing design, construction, main- 
tainencc and insurance of such 
buildings. Dr. Harold Manor, 
president, said, "This does not 
commit us to anything but 
further planning." 

David H. Brady presented a 
$400 check from the Scottish 
Rite Foundation for scholar- 
ships. Brady asked that the 
money go to a needy student.

Petition signatures c 
calls for faculty rep 



Charles Loveday 
Editor 

A petition calling for a change 
of faculty representation in 
instructor contract bargaining 
has received the required 
number of signatures, 30 per 
cent of the total number of 
instructors on the campuses. 

The petition asks for a 
reassessment of United Faculty 
(UF), which is the present 
faculty representation. 

Robert L. Book, instructor of 
Engineering and Engineering 
Graphics, and Raymond W. 
Sweet.mathematics instructor, 



were instrumental in obtaining 
the required number of 
signatures. 

Book explained each of the 
three articles of the petition, 
noting several personal reasons 
for involvement in the call for an 
election. 

The first article was explained 
by Book to be "...dealing with 
forcing non-union members to 
pay dues to the union . ' ' 

When asked if this was. the 
legislation UF tried to obtain, 
Book said, "That is something 1 
understand all unions try to 



adequate 
. change 

do." However, when asked for 
examples, he could give none. 



Senator elections held 
turnout poor-as usual 

By Dave Taylor 
Associate News Editor 

Four hundred twenty eight students voted in Student Government 
(SG) senate elections out of a second highest enrollment of JC, 7,927. 

"I feel that the turn-out could have been better, but comparing the 
past and present of Student Government we are thankful," stated SG 
Vice-president, Ronald Pugh . 

Elections were conducted by Carol Countryman and Bill 
Musselwhite. 

"We would like to thank all students who participated in helping 
watch the voting polls," saidivlusselwhite. 

Senators for this year are as follows: Jane Armstrong, Ana Luz 
Bacas, Pat Bagley, Guy Calamunci, Katie Cooke, Dave Coakley, 
Maurice Gaffney, Michael Gurklis, Kimberly Kendrick, Michael 
Lanigan, Victor Martinez, Terry Mauney, Belinda McGill, Sonny 
Nyman, Vernelle Patrick, Deatrice Patterson, Kathleen Purvis, Dean 
Ririgdahl, Thomas Romando, Rosemarie Satchell, Jerry Wildman 
Joseph Turner, Ed Waldron, Ben Walters. 

Senators are pictured on pg. six. Waldron did not meet his 
appointment for photographic session. 



UF President Maxine Vignau 
said, "To the best of my 
knowledge we are not initiating 
any legislation of that kind." 

Book referred to a union's 
trying to pass similar legislation 
in Minnesota and a subsequent 
court case concerning its 
constitutionality. 

Vignau said, "I think Mr. 
Book should get information of 
such legislation in this state." 

Article two of the petition, in 
Book's words, is, "UF has been 
guilty of questionable, if not 
unprofessional, methods in their 
bargaining", citing use of 
headlines from a 1965 paper in a 
union letter to the faculty, as 
one example. "This was a 
misleading thing to do because 
that was before the faculty 
senate was here. The newslet- 
ters give facts that, unless you 
read into them, are mislead- 
ing," explained Book. 

Faculty Senate was a body of 
teachers that discussed instruc- 
tor contracts before the faculty 
voted in UF. 

Members were elected by 
their fellow workers to represent 
their department in the 
discussion. 

Senate Chairman Dr. Harold 
C. Manor had final say because 
he held sole veto power over any 
proposals the senate made.

Forensics may suffer 

Cross country eliminated 



By Dave Taylor 
Associate Editor-News 

Opening the meeting with the report on the 
Athletic^ budget breakdown was Dr. Howard 
Reynolds, Athletic director. 

Reynolds used the chalkboard to illustrate how 
many dollars were allocated to each athletic 
activity. 

Questions were then fielded by students and 
advisors attending the SAFC meeting as to how the 
money was spent. 

When asked if the '77-78 allocations from the 
Board of Trustees (BOT) made up for the one per 
cent deduction in the Student Activity Fee, 
Reynolds replied "No." 

After asking Reynolds where the cutback came 
from, he explained that Cross-Country was 
eliminated this year. They received almost $4,000 
last year. 

In a later conversation with Reynolds he 



UF 



revealed that there was a $5,700 increase in the 
'77-78 budget as compared to the 76-77 funds 
allocated by BOT. 

"The difference is because of the increase in 
tuition," stated Reynolds. 

Terry Mauney, student representative for 
forensics, distributed copies of the budget 
breakdown to everyone present. 

Last year JC was the only school who had 
finalists in every event at a national tournament. 
JC won first place in the nation in Extemporaneous 
speaking. 

Last year it cost $1171.07 to send four students 
to the nationals, explained Mauney. "The advisor 
was unable to attend because the funds were not 
available." 

Next week WPBC and Galleon are to present 
their budget breakdown in room SS 06. All 
students are urged to attend as the money being 
spent is yours. ' 



from pg 1 



Faculty members expressed 
strong feelings because Manor 
served as college president 
while chairing the senate. 

Book could not recall any 
other letters as documentation 
of the "unprofessional" bar- 
gaining UF is accused of. 

"If Book has a case to 
present, he should give 
documentation, because that is 
the educated method of 
empirical evidence," says 
Vignau. 



The letter in question, sent to 
all union members, emphasized 
that the headlines were to show 
negotiation problems existed 
before instructors supported the 
union. 



No proposals concerning how 
to deal with the administration if 
UF is voted out have been made 
by Book or Sweet. 

"It will be up to Eissey to 
decide how_ to deal with the 
instructors," says Book. 

Vignau stated, "They want to 
give Dr. Eissey a chance when 
he comes in. The union would 
also like to give him a chance. ' ' 

"1 have heard of the 
petition," said Eissey, explain- 
ing that whether or not there is a 
union it makes no difference in 
his dealing with the instructors . 



The union's letter stated the 
date the headlines appeared and 
the publications in which they 
appeared. 

Article three of the petition 
states that during the two years 
the faculty has been represent- 
ed by UF, it has not gained 
anything for the faculty. 

"As far as I am concerned we 
have lost ground since UF has 
been here," said Book, adding, 
"I was never for the union in the 
first place." 

Book said he and many of the 
petition signers felt the union 
should be removed in order to 
give incoming president Dr. 
Edward M. Eissey a "free 
hand" in dealing with the 
faculty. 



"It is my job as an 
^administrator, to deal with the 
/ faculty, it makes no difference if 
there is or is not a union, 
because'' I will deal with the 
instructors in either event," 
conveyed Eissey. 

"That always sounds good 
and it may work, but what would 
be the criterion for dealing with 
people on a personal basis," 
countered Vignau. 



The Board of Trustees (BOT) 
is the legislative board. It has 
final say in contract bargaining. 
The college president can only 
make recommendations to the 
BOT. 

At present, union-adminis- 
tration negotiations are at a 
standstill. Recently, both sides 
agreed they have reached a 
deadlock in the faculty contract 
bargaining, 



UF is attempting to save 
thousands of taxpayers' dollars 
and shorten negotiations by 
bypassing special master pro- 
ceedings. 

UF wants to go directly to the 
BOT for the dispute settlement. 

Both sides are now awaiting a 
decision from the Public 
Employees Relations Commit- 
tee (PERC) as to whether a 
bypass is legal. 

Because of these circumstan- 
ces. Vignau believes "the 
timing of the petition is wrong." 

Book feels that if the union 
wins the election, it could 
enhance their position, and 
because of that they should not 
oppose an election. 



"lam not sure we are against 
an election, but it is another 
expensive procedure," said 
Vignau. 

An election will cost taxpay- 
ers and UF thousands of dollars 
because PERC has to confirm 
signatures and schedule a 
supervised election. 

Other sources think only 
new faculty has been 
approached with the petition. 
They noted that the wording of 
the petition is ambigious, if not 
misleading. 

This petition is similar to a 
petition circulated last spring, 
also calling for an election, but it 
failed to receive the required 
number of votes to be sent to 
PERC in Tallahassee.

Oct. 2. J 



" Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) is to 
hold a formal initiation for new 
members on Sunday, October 2, 
■ at 7:30 p.m. in the SAC lounge. 

Dr. Richard E. Yinger, 
Exosociblogist and social scien- 
ce instructor is to be the

misconceptions about PTK. 

Parents and friends of new 
initiates are invited to attend the 
initation ceremony.

Cast picked for play 
twelve actors chosen 

By Sonny Nyman 
Staff Writer 

Talent has been chosen and production begun for the upcoming 
play "Ring Round The Moon". 

Six men and six women were chosen for the play and four student 
directors were selected to aid in technical areas. Selections were 
made by play director and speech teacher, Sunny Meyer from those 
who auditioned Sept. 14. 

The play is set in a lavish 1928 household where soap-opera-like 
antics confuse the best of ' 'soaper' ' admirers. 

Student directors are Lisa Borbonus, Linda Conn, Rus Geller and 
Bob Woodard. 

Describing the job, Woodard said "I'll be giving out instruction on 
blocking (movement and positions of actors on stage). ..where they 
are on stage... and help them overcome interpretation of words." 

The play guarantees action-packed scenes. "We have one or two 
fight scenes, and that will mean quite a bit of rehearsing so that the 
actors won't get hurt," says Woodard. One of the fight scenes is 
between Diana Messerschmann and Isabello over Hugo's affections. 

Dale Brubaker, set designer, has made the basic plans for the set. 
The main set is to be lattice work, a working fountain and a generally 
plush atmosphere. 

Those chosen for the play are: Joshua, John Kerrison; 
Hugo Frederic, Gary Lazur; Diana Messerschmann, Colleen Lavoie; 
Patrice Bombelles, Bobby Amor; Madame DesMortes, Patty 
Koopman; Capulet, Rebecca Castle; Messerschmann, Ross Thomas; 
Romainville, Randy Constantino; Isabelle, Melanie Moore; Her 
mother, Melanie Lash; General, Bruce Goldberg; and Lady India, 
Ana Miller. Technical director is Frank Leahy and Shop Foreman is 
Tom Hansen.

Student fees fund squabble 




Gunda Caldwell 
Editorials 



Someone, finally, is trying to shorten the extensive, expensive and 
exhaustive negotiation stalemate. United Faculty (UF) wants to 
bypass the special masters proceeding in faculty contract 
negotiations and appeal directly to Board of Trustees (BOT) for 
settlement. 

For the past two years legal maneuvering has gone in circles. 
Because special master reports are not binding, they become nothing 
more than a costly legal exercise in futility. 

Jesse Hoggs, attorney for administration, has stated that he 
expects an excess of $4,000, not including his fees, to be spent on 
special masters this year. For what? The ultimate decision will 
eventually be referred back to BOT as the legislative body with 
authority to deal with the problem. 

Administration and maintenance have fixed budgets. Their 
expenses are consistent and earmarked for special purposes when 
they are allocated, they have been granted enough increases to meet 
rising costs. 

That leaves the faculty. Their salary increases have not been raised 
anywhere near to what administration has granted itself. Office space 
and working facilities for instructors are far from adequate or 
comparable to other offices on our campus. Paper work and 
counseling students apparently are not as important as the business 
aspect of JC. 

The most alarming aspect of the problem is the attitude taken by 
administration. They seem to be prepared to indefinitely continue the 
battle with UF, at any cost, no matter who gets hurt. Taxpayers 
surely do not appreciate such careless expenditure of their tax 
monies. Court action and legal representation do not come cheap. 

Instructors who speak out on behalf of the union become "marked 
and isolated" people. Theirs are the programs to suffer cutbacks and 
possible cancellations. 

In time, these instructors find the atmosphere intolerable. Other 
members of the faculty are afraid to defend the ' 'marked" ones. They 
then become as vulnerable as though they had received a "kiss of 
death." 

Sadly, these are the very ones who have much to offer, and have 
contributed much in the past. They have pride and self-respect. Some 
of our finest intellects may be lost to us. Make no mistake, it will be 
oiu-ioss". !• '"' : i'" ; - '"'*: '-■■■■■■'•'::.■:. '- : ■-■. ■■•■*; y -,_.,■-.,..■, , ,., '.■>.,■,.;■ 

Last, consider the effect on students. Faculty intimidation and an 
adamant administrative position result in real hurt to students. 

The insight we gain of administration is not favorable. We 
expected more-fairness, concern for our academic welfare and a good 
working relationship between our teachers and administration. What 
should be an inspiration has become disillusionment. 

In the beginning of negotiations, students felt no involvement. We 
just took for granted that there would be an intelligent and mature 
discussion with an early settlement As months and then years pass, 
we can no longer ignore the situation. 

Teachers we respect and admire are becoming casualties and our 
programs threatened or cut back. When we become the real losers, 
we must get involved and call for a return to our real business of 
education. 

An attorney from another county tells us we must spend thousands 
of dollars on a foredoomed bargaining procedure at the same time UF 
is trying to prevent it from happening. Why must this happen? ' 

Sooner or later, BOT must meet with- UF to make some sort of 
peaceful settlement. UF has held out the first hand.. ..It is time for 
compromise and harmony. This long-drawn out war has cost us too 
much. It is time to stop.

Instructor misleads student 
Bell's tone doesn't ring true 



We believe that whenever possible, instructors 
and advisors are to aid and inform students, not to 
mislead them by playing the semantics game or 
giving them false information. 

For those instructors who may not be able to 
differentiate between administrators and adminis- 
tration, let us state that the administration is 
composed of administrators . 

When a Beachcomber reporter asked a 
teacher-advisor if he was instrumental in 
circulating a petition, and if he had spoken to the 
administration on possible alternatives to the UF, 
he replied that he had not talked to the 
"administration". 

An informed source notified us that his stated 
reason for not admitting that he had spoken to the 
administrator was that the reporter used 
administration and not administrator. 

A trifle picky, we think. 



The Beachcomber learned that the instructor 
had in fact talked to Dr. Eissey. 

For those who may not know, let us assure you 
that Dr. Eissey is an administrator w!"> wears two 
hats. He is vice president of the North —Tipus and 
the next president of JC. 

, The presjdf m-elect confirmed that the instructor 
did come to his office concerning "personal 
matters" and "conditions". 

Therefore, when we ask an instructor-advisor if 
he has spoken tc the administration, we would 
appreciate an ac urate answer. 

From this time on we hope, this instructor will 
not play the semantics game. 

Let this serve as »■ rt minder that students are 
here to learn and not to be insulted. 

We hope we have made this message as clear as 
a Bell. 



'Comber may go bi - weekly 



In the next several days, after 
a series of 'Comber staff 
meetings, an announcement will 
be made as to the, Beachcomb- 
er's future publication schedule. 

We have a smaller staff and 
are trying to compete with 
staffers who have outside jobs. 

In previous years, 'Comber 
staffers have received honorar- 
iums that generated from ad 
revenue. But we can no longer 



find students who have the time 
or the initiative to sell ads. 

For several years the 
Beachcomber has attempted to 
gain financial assistance in the 
form of grant aids similar to 
those athletes receive from the 
Board of Trustees. But the 
Beachcomber has received no 
such additional funds. 

The Beachcomber operates 
three terms per year on a weekly 
basis with a student staff 



comparable in size to most other 
campus activities, but has no 
assistant advisor as many of the 
others have. 

It is possible that the 'Comber 
may abandon its weekly 
publication schedule. But the 
final decision will not be made 
until many alternatives have 
been examined. 

We now plan Oct. 10 as our 
next publication date. 



Circle Kto stage highway robbery benefit 



Plans for staging a "highway robbery" to aid 
the Randy Herron Fund were unveiled by Circle K 
at their Wednesday, Sept. 21 meeting. 

Randy is the 17-year-old son of Palm Beach 
Sheriff's Office Major Robert Herron. He is 
paralyzed from the neck down as the result of a 
July 10 diving accident. 

Circle K President Susann Seremet explained 
that the fund raising will be held on Saturday, Oct. 
15 at 10th Ave. and Congress Ave. where K 
members are to station themselves to solicit. 

Also discussed at the weekly meeting were some 
of this year's projects. Being looked at are 
Halloween parties for the Pennsylvania House 
Retirement Home and the Community Action 
Council. 



Last week the group made the water fountain in 
front of the Business Administration Building 
operational again by cleaning it. 

One of Seremet's main goals for this year is to 
make Circle K larger than what it is now. 

"If this is to be achieved, students must get rid 
of apathy," stated Seremet. 

After the club submits a purchase requisition to 
ICC they will know the amount of funding they'll 
have to help finance a trip to a state convention at 
Cape Coral, Ha. Oct. 28-30. 

Seremet pointed out that Circle K is the same 
thing as Exchange Club, Civitans, Key Club and 
Keyettes in high school. 

"Circle K is coed and doesn't have ehaperones. 
That's the big difference," said Seremet.

Confessions of a Gong Show addict 



By LoriMann 
Staff Writer 

I am an addict. Each day I 
find myself craving my personal 
brand of dope. I suffer horrible 
tortures when I don 't receive a 
fix for over 24 hours. At times, 
even once a day isn't enough. 

Mine is a psychological 
dependence my body could go 
without but. my mind will not 
allow it. I really can't quit, so I 
Ljuess I'm happy being a Gong 



Show junkie. 

How can I express the thrill I 
feel each time the gong sounds. 
1 get goosebumps as Chuck 
Barris ambles out with his hat 
slung down low over his 
forehead. 

How did I start my habit? It 
began on a day I had nothing to 
do. As I was flicking the 
channels of my- TV, my screen 
was suddenly filled with a man 
dressed up like a two hundred 



pound weiner singing a German 
love song. I couldn't resist. 

Then out came this curly 
haired bundle of jokes, such hot 
numbers as, "Why did the 
chicken cross the road? To hold 
up his red suspenders!" 

I kept watching and saw such 
glorious spectacles as a 90 year 
old belly dancer who could make 
her wrinkles wiggle. But my 
favorite was the bald man 
dressed in a loin cloth singing 
"Candy Man" while smearing 



Hershey's chocolate syrup on 
his body. A true classic. 

Suddenly I was hooked 1 I now 
watch the show every day. I 
suffer through weekends with 
acute withdrawal symptoms. 
Headaches and nightmares 
haunt me as I beg for relief. 
Periodically I wake up scream- 
ing, "Gong him! Gong him." 

Yes, 1 am hooked, a hopeless 
junkie with a habit that won't 
quit. Unless, of course, they 
cancel the show. 



Controversial "Soap" leads fall laugh line-up 



ByCeliaVock 
Staff Writer 

ABC may have struck gold 
with its controversial comedy 
"Soap" which made its debut 
Tuesday, Sept. 13. The network 
anticipated protests reminiscent 
of those against Norman Lear's 
"Hot L Baltimore" a few 
seasons back and got them. 

WARNING: This show may 
not be suitable for all family 
members. Parental discretion is 
advised. 

The first-rate sarcastic humor 
would go right over the heads of 
die children. The jokes and 



acting were equally effective, 
more so than a lot of television 
programs that simply insult the 
intelligence of their audience. 



Soap operas are classic for this, 
a spoof of them is an appealing 
alternative. 



The first two episodes 
touched on murder, adultery, 
organized crime, sexual impo- 
tence, homosexuality and even 
transvestitism without being 
obscene or offensive. The racial 
humor was in good taste, with 
Benson the houseman running 
away with the show from the 
first scene. 



ABC won't be hearing any 
protests from me, I like the 
show. Tune in, I think you'll 
enjoy it. 

• ••'." 
"Logan's Run" reinforced my 
dislike of science fiction. The 
story was boring, the special 
effects minimal. I imagine "Star 
Wars" has set new standards. 

Set in the 24th century, Logan 
and his female companion 
Jessica are "on the run" in 
search of a sanctuary where 
they can raise their children to 
be beautiful and wonderful 
people. It resembles a 24th 
century "Fugitive." 

They have to go this place 



before Logan reaches the age of 
30. On the way they pick up 
another passenger, an android 
named Rem, who is very logical. 
Where's Leonard Nimoy when 
we need him? 

That's when I went to sleep, 
wasting a good part of a Friday 
night.

Can man see into the future? Do our 
modern seers really predict or are they 
making shrewd, educated guesses based 
on prophecies made long ago? 



In the past, magic or supernatural gifts 
were considered the devil's work and 
brought swift, severe punishment and 
death. Compulsion to issue warnings 
overcame fear of discovery, so prophets 
often put their utterances into symbolic 
form.

drug laws.) "Sad councils, unfaithful and 
malicious, by ill advice the law shall be 
•betrayed," surely describes our current 
legal system of justice. 



During this century, Nostradamas 
warned, we shall have upheavals, 
disasters, alternating flood and drought, 
preparation for World War III will be 
conducted, and we shall also see the end 
of communism. 



Michael Nostradamas, brilliant French 
physician and astrologist, lived from 1503 World War HI will inflict a scourge on 
to 1566. He left behind written raan and animal of a kind never before 
predictions for the future 7,000 years. He witnessed on earth. America will suffer 
touched upon changes in the solar system " " " 

and events in space that would affect 
earth many centuries before these things 



came to pass. He talked of countries and 
inventions that did not yet exist. 

Passing centuries have confirmed 
repeatedly his accurate views of coming 
events. Time has, indeed, proven him to 
be a true prophet. 



A new, far-off (from France) land he 
named "L'Americh eagle" (U.S.A.) with 
a "new city" (New York City) on a 
seacoast and a garden state near 
man-made mountains (New Jersey near 
skyscrapers of N. Y.) 

• He predicted for the twentieth 
century that White ^nd black would - 
intermix (integration) but that the yellow 
and red races would remain aloof, that 
the "eye of the sea shall give oil and 
wheat" (energy and food shortages 
solved through water) and he referred to 



an air invasion in July 1999, with 
reverses, revolts and adverse weather 
conditions (famished with cold). 



• The beginning of the twenty-first 
century will bring a continuation of the 
turmoil and strife. Global changes will 
cause adjustments and new attitudes by 
everydne. He advised residents of large 
dries to evacuate because "the contrary 
of the positive ray shall exterminate all," 
but that there would be advance warning 
(heaven shall show signs). 



Seacoasts in America (the new country) 
and the rest of the world will be affected 
by upheavals (also suggested by 
geopftysicists) and wide scale looting and 
ifl.undering will take place during these 
disasters. 

Technical knowledge will be greatly 
advanced. A new invention (machine) will 
profoundly affect mankind. We will have 



inflation as ' 'great credit of gold, silver of | choice to enhance either health or food 



great abundance... with blind honor by 
lust." Moral permissiveness wijt 
accompany inflation. Also, at that time, 
"the offense of the adulterer shall' be 
known, which shall come to his great 
dishonor. ' ' (Watergate and Nixon?) 

"Poison" will be spread so widely that 
it will be "mixed with the law." (Drugs

A new source of food supply will be 
discovered, (probably brought to light by 
earth upheavals). Man will be afraid, but 
eventually find it to be a food supply. 
Much more treasure (resources) now 
hidden by sea and earth will be 
uncovered. 



An extensive and disastrous drought 
will precede man's decision to establish 
life in outer space. He will settle one 
planet, with government. It will be rich in 

resources and all will benefit, which will 
instigate further movement to other 
planets. 

Sadly, man will also take his warlike 
attitudes into space, ending with a war 
launched from another planet upon earth. 



In the mideast. continued hostilities 
will cease in the first part of the 
twenty-first century, with Israel victori- 
ous. She will develop into a model 
country. 

New York's future is gloomy, with a 
great earthquake and natural upheavals 
leaving desolation. Ireland will suffer 
betrayal in negotiations concerning a 
religious war and some of Europe's 
established governments will suffer 
treachery and come to an end. The 
"eagle" as Nostradamas called America, 
will play a dominant role in the affairs of 
this new world. Armament negotiations 
will bring peach (there is no other choice) 
because any alternative would bring 
death to all. 

Early space programs will disappoint, 
but continued, further explorations will 
bring new planets into our scene. 



Religious clashes will end with a 
one-world religion. Dishonorable judges 
and government leaders will be ousted 
and replaced with honorable, qualified 
persons. War shall cease. We finally shall 
learn how to respect the rights of others, 
making law enforcement obsolete. 

An era of peace, prosperity and 
restoration of the damaged environment 
will bring harmony to the earth. A 
one-government world will be ruled with 
concern for everyone, but only after man 
has suffered greatly in learning the value 
of this behavior. 

• He ended the 7,000-year prophecy 
with the statement that the solar system 
shall change and events in outer space 
will greatly affect man and his planet, 
forcing him to live at peace with himself 
and his cavironment.

Growing up has its pitfalls 



By Robin Plitt 
Venture Columnist 

Growing up is: 

Tying your own shoes or 
making enough money to buy 
loafers. 

Eliminating your parents as a 
middleman between you and the 
credit union. 

Knowing how to make your 
own breakfast and never having 
enough time to eat it. 

Finally earning the privilege 
of staying out late and never 
doing it because you are too 
tired. 

Never having enough time to 
do the things you planned to 
when you had the time. 



and 



was 



Giving a knowing look 
telling someone, "When I 
your age...". 

Telling a child, "How do you 
expect to grow big and strong if 
you don't eat your vegetables?" 
and skipping lunch for a quick 
run to the snack machine. 

Breaking yourself of thumb- 
sucking only to satisfy the desire 
by chewing on a pencil or 
smoking a cigar. 

Being old enough to grow a 
beard and making sure you are 
always clean shaven. 

The ability to tell someone, 
"Don't worry kid, you'll 
understand the whole thing 
when you are a little older". 



Putting away your toy cars, 
boats, trucks and planes, only to 
replace them with the real 
thing. 

Knowing the facts of life and 
when to use them. 

Walking through the child- 
ren's department at a clothing 
store and saying "Remember 
when...." 

Being able to look out of the 
front window of a car while you 
are seated. 

Knowing that it isn't how you 
play the game but by how much 
you win that really counts. 

Having gained a college 
degree so you can wake up in 
the morning and read the 
comics. 



Hampton: the winning sound 



What band is number one in 
Palm Beach County? According 
to the five judges in the second 
annual Top Rock Search, - 
Hampton. 

A six piece band, including 
two outstanding female vocal- 
ists, Hampton's versatility is 
proven by the range of songs in 
their repertoire. 



From soft love songs such as 
Rufus' "Sweet Thing" to 
Heart's hard rocking "Barra- 
cuda", Hampton's dynamic 
energy is easily recognized. 

Formed in February, 1976, 
Hampton consists of Harry 
Johnson, drummer; Steve 
"Gonzo" Owen, bass guitarist; 
Kathi Black and Gloria Kalis, 
vocalists and Jim Ande and 
Chris Wink guitarists. 

After being together for two 
months, they appeared before 



an audience for the first time at 
the 1976 Top Rock Search 
sponsored by radio station 
WIRK and 7-11 placing sixth in 
the county. This year they 
stormed back to take first place 
in the county and finished at the 
state finals in the Top Ten out of 
three hundred competing 
bands. 

Working in local night clubs 
such as Dante's Den, Hot 
Nights in the South and Ricky 
D's, Hampton continues to draw 
large crowds as their reputation 
as atalented rock band grows. 

By developing their own 
sound and writing original 
material, Hampton strives 
toward their goal of becoming a 
recording group. 

"It is encouraging to see the 
response we get from our 
original material. Audiences are 
beginning to request songs that 
we've written, and that's a good 
sign," states Hampton's lead 



guitarist Chris Wink. 

The creative prowess display- 
ed in the original material is 
indicative of their potential to 
become a successful recording 
band. 

Strong harmonies blend to 
distinguish the Hampton sound 
from that of an ordinary rock 
band. 

Melodic harmonies glide 
through "Did You See Her 
Face", a slow, dreamy ballad. 
The upbeat jazzy tempo of 
"Someday", another Hampton 
original, is very rhythmic, as are 
the hard driving sounds of 
"You've Got A Lover", and 
"Back Pack Boogie". "Cold 
Showers", a country blues song 
with progressive rock intervals 
must be heard to be believed. 

AH in all, Hampton is a hard 
hitting rock band that truly 
deserves the title "Number 
One".

PART TV IN A SERIES 

Police in the modern cinema, especially in the anti-hero 
movies, are either non-existent or made to look ineffectual and 
buffoon-like. "Dirty Mary, Crazy Harry", starring Peter Fonda 
and Susan George, consisted of a kidnap-for-ransom 
beginning, and a car chase in which nearly seven police cars 
are disabled or demolished completely. 

No •police are injured, making the dubious "heroes" people 
to be applauded because they beat the system. Beating the 
system apparently doesn't pay, though, for the heroes were 
killed when they struck a train in their getaway car. 

The violence in the cinema is varied and diversified. Rape, 
beating, shooting, stabbing and genocide are often depicted in 
graphic detail. 

No longer does the shooting victim merely spin and fall to the 
ground, for realism is the name of the game. A shooting victim 
now has bits of flesh fly from the wound and blood spurt forth 
in a gusher. Realism may be the excuse, but for impressionable 
children, it may be too much. 

Cinema is a make "believe world", but stark realism in 
death and mayhem may strip away the "Make believe" mask, 
presenting to the viewer a much too close to home view of 
things around him. 

He sees death in the news, actual death, but it has little 
affect on him. Death is toolarge an undertaking to be effective 
on a 21 " television screen. 

But presented on a 40-foot movie screen, death, make 
believe death, imbeds itself on the viewer in Technicolor and 
stereosound. As the blood spreads on the victim's shirt, absolute 



and final death in a make believe world is accepted as "the way 
things go" ty the viewer. 

Violence ia the cinema has no regulations to guide it, no 
boundaries or stopping^point. Violence progresses with the 
audience and as soon as the audience is tired of one form, 
Ho!lywoo4 is forqgd to find another to please the "violence 

starved" customers. 

The violence presented in a movie with but a PG or R rating 
to warn the unknowing parent, can leave an impression on the 
child long aftec. 

The answer to the violence in the movies lies not in the total 
removal of violence, but rather in stricter enforcement and use 
of the movie rating code. Unfortunately, the code is too loose in 
its interpretation. Too many variables are present. What is 
violence? A woman slapping her husband? The police shooting 
a criminal? A maniac lobbing the limbs of his victims with a 
chain sa\$? * 

Mild violence or the threat of violence is a mainstay of all 
adventure movies ever made, but films with excessive violence, 
especially when the movie depends on the violence for its story, 
is a poor choice for child viewing. 

The Senate Committee on Violence and Media shows that the 
affects of violence in the movies is similar to its affects from 
television • that aggressive people watch more of them and 
become more aggressive because of them, while the 
non-agressive watch an equal ratio of violent and non-violent 
movies. 

To ma3y Fopld; movies containing sex do less harm than 
movies relying mainly on violence. Such may be the case, but 
those who s&ninister the Code ratings don 't believe it .

Rhodes initiates idea 



Woman attempts to make Pacer baseball team 



By Jim Goodman 
Sports Editor 

If anyone walks' by the 
baseball field during the 
afternoon, they may feel that 
their eyes are deceiving them. 
Baseball practice is underway 



during this time, and they 
shouldn't be surprised if they 
see a feminine figure shagging 
fly balls in right field. 

Twenty-year-old Kathy Pad- 
gett is trying to become the first 
woman to make the Pacers 
baseball team. Her chances may 



not be so slim either, if her first 
day of practice is any indication. 
The team had to practice in 
the gym because of rain. Coach 
Dusty Rhodes had the squad run 
laps in the gym for 20 
consecutive minutes, and Pad- 
gett surprised the coach by

Cagers drill for upcoming season 



By Jim Swann 
Staff Writer 

Hopes are high this year for 
the basketball team which 
boasts an experienced squad. 
The team began official 
practices on Oct. 1 but had been 
doing some earlier conditioning 
work to get in shape. 

The team has been playing 
full court games twice a week. 
Coach Cerovolo has been giving 
individual attention to anyone 
who needs it. 

Ceravolo's second season as 
the Pacer's coach and he feels it 
should be easier since both he 
and his players are more 
accustomed to each other. It 
should be a little better since 
they know my methods of 
practice and so on," says 
Ceravolo. 

Hopes are high this year 
because the team has a number 
of returners from last year. 
These include Mike Bennett, 



William Buchanan, Dirk Jami- 
son, Shack Leonard, Derrick 
Paul and Sam Wethersbee. 

These returners help to 
counterbalance the loss of 6*11" 
Steve Kierney, who transferred 
to Virginia Tech,and 6'8" Harry 
Dolan, who went to West 
Carolina. Both were expected to 
play here but moved to bigger 
schools. 

The big loss comes in the 
form of graduation which 
claimed standouts Bill Shoe- 
maker and Adrian Williams. 
Shoemaker went to South Fla. 
Univ. and Williams went to St. 
Francis University. 



Even with the loss of these 
performers there is still an 
abundance of talent. Don 
Hewston, a transfer from 
Cleveland, Mike Melendez from 
New York and Bob Weber add 
more depth to the squad. 



Also helping "out is former 
North Shore star Gerald Nelson, 
who transferred from Sanford 
Univ. Nelson is ineligible the 
first half of the season but he 
can compete for the team during 
the second half of the year. The 
team also picked up a walkon in 
former Forest Hill graduate 
Steve Hart. 



Coach Ceravolo said that the 
team picked up four walk ons 
last year during the season and 
could possible get some more 
players that way later on in the 
year. 

It is too early to do any 
predicting but Coach Ceravolo 
feels that Fort Meyers Edison is 
a ' tough contender in, state 
competition. He also said that 
Indian River and • both Dade 
North and South should be 
strong and make the Division 
race another dogfight.

keeping up with the men players 
for 19 minutes before finally 
giving in to fatigue. 

Of course running laps is 
much different than hitting and 
fielding, but Padgett feels that 
she has a chance at making the 
team. 

"I'm mainly worried about 
hitting the ball," she said. "I'm 
not used to the ball blazing by 



"I think I'm a pretty good 
defensive player though," she 
added. 

She says that her competing 
on the team has nothing to do 
with women's liberation. In fact, 
it was Rhodes' idea for her to try 
out for the squad. 

"I'm in his co-ed Softball 
class and he asked me to try out 
for the baseball team." Padgett 
explained. 

"At first I thought he was 
joking, but then I saw that he 
was serious. I decided I might as 
well give it a try," she said. 

Rhodes admitted that her 
chances of making the team are 
small. 



"Her main problem is that 
she's never played baseball. 
That would put anybody at a big 
disadvantage." Rhodes said. 

"The main reason I asked her 
to try out for the team is that I 
wanted to see how well a girl 
with good athletic ability could 
compete on the team," he 
commented. 



"She's a great softball player 
though," added Rhodes. 



Softball is actually Padgett's 
main goal. She feels that the 
tough competition on the 
baseball squad should be a big 
asset when she tried out for 
Coach Bobbie Knowles softball 
team during the Winter term. 

Padgett, who is a landscape 
and architecture major, has 
been interested in baseball all 
her life. She was born in 
Panama City where her entire 
family became avid baseball 
fans. 



She started playing softball 
when she was eight. She moved 
to West Palm Beach seven years 
ago and attended Twin Lakes 
High School. 

Although she plans to give up 
baseball during the Winter 
term, there is still a chance of 
continuing in the sport. 

"I'll continue playing base- 
ball if I get drafted by a Major 
League team," she said. 



The baseball team received 
good news when it was learned 
that catcher Scott Benedict 
received the Sportsmanship 
Award of the American Legion 
World Series. Benedict played 
for West Palm Beachs' Post 12 
during the competition.

Men golfers finish eighth in tourney 



By Mike Snody 
Staff Writer 

They say when it rains it 
pours and that's exactly what it 
did at the Royal Oak Country 
Club in Titusville where the 
men's golf team finished eighth 
in the Brevard Invitational 
Tournament. 

Brevard won the 14-team 
tournament which was held 
Sept. 20-21, with a 36-hole score 
of 592 strokes. 



Following Brevard was Brow- 
ard Central, 607, Dade south, 
612, St. Petersburg, 619, Indian 
River, 620, Florida Jr. College, 
621, and Florida Southern junior 
varsity, 627. 

The Pacers finished 42 
strokes behind the winners with 
634. 

Kim Swan led the team with a 
score of 154. Other scorers for 
the Pacers were Ken Greene, 



157, Rich Fellenstein, 158 and 
John Skemp, 165. 

The first day of the 
tournament was to be devoted to 
practice, but it was cancelled 
because of heavy rains. 

Coach Bob Prentiss felt that 
the wet conditions hurt his 
squad. 

"My players are not rain 
players. I'm sure we could have 



done better if it hadn't rained," 
Prentiss said. 

The Pacers next match is the 



Polk Invitational Sept. 20- Oct. 
1. The 36-hole tournament is 
being held at the Willow Brook 
Golf Course in Winter Haven.

Vignau files charge against Manor 



Charges of withholding Public Records 
have been filed against President Harold 
C. Manor by United Faculty (UF) 
President Maxine Vignau. 

Vignau stated that she has been 
requesting, to no avail, information on 
instructors' salaries, supplements, re- 
lease time, and number of years 
experience since mid-August. 

Vice President of Business Affairs 



Tony G. Tate was the first administrator 
Vignau approached in her search for 
the records. 

Tate is quoted by Vignau as saying 
there were no such records available. As 
of Sept. 19 she had not received the data 
shg asked Tate to provide. 

Upon meeting with Manor, Vignau said 
she was referred to Tate. Vignau said she 
then related her previous meeting with 




Tate to Manor. 

Vignau stated that Manor also stated 
that the records do not exist. 

"I decided we had exhausted the 

. means we had, since we had come a full 

circle, and that it was a matter for the 

state district attorney's office," said 

Vignau. 

"Mrs. Vignau had not been denied 
access to any public recordsjust denied 
our obligation to compile the records," 



responded Manor to the charges. 

The charges filed against Manor are 
second degree misdemeanor charges and 
carry a penalty of $500 fine and/or a 60 
day jail sentence. If found guilty Manor 
would also be subject to removal or 
impeachment. 

An investigation of the charges is to be 
conducted by the state district attorney's 
office during the next week.

PERC cites Florida statutes 



_ Public Employees Relations Committee (PERC) 
responded to the United Faculty's (UF) intended 
by-pass of Special Masters proceedings with a 
letter stating that the action was not within the 
limits of the law. 

For substantiation PERC cited, "Section 
447.403, Florida Statutes mandates that a Special 
Master be appointed to resolve all impasse items 
between the public employer and the certified 
bargaining unit." 

UF had written PERC, explaining hopes of 
by-passing the proceedings for time and 
money-saving purposes. 

Maxine Vignau, UF president, said that she now 
intends to write PERC concerning a law -recently 
passed by the legislature. This law says, in effect, 
strict compliance with the law is not mandatory if 
PERC feels that it would cause manifest 



unfairness. 

Vignau said, "We are asking for a declaratory 
judgement or clarification. " 

Since UF stated its intention to by-pass, the 
administrative representative.attorney Jesse Hogg, 
has maintained that a by-pass would be illegal. 

If the proposed by-pass is ruled illegal by PERC, 
then selection of a special master must follow 
guidelines stated in the Bargaining laws. 

Both sides will received a list of possible 
candidates from which they are to eliminate 
individuals, thus reaching a mutually acceptable 
individual to be the special master. 

BULLETIN— 

The 'comber was infomed, after deadline, that the 
recent petition calling for a faculty representation 
election will not be accepted by PERC. Follow-up 
in next edition.

Comm ittee resigns 
for liability reasons 



By Emily Hamer 
Editor 

Four of the six faculty 
members of the assembly 
committee have resigned. 

The committee is responsible 
for selecting and arranging 
assembly programs. 

Dr. Mary Bosworth, Ray 
Daugherty, Aristotle Haretos . 
and Ruth Widdows decided to 
withdraw from the committee 
because of potential liability in 
connection with accidents 
occurring at programs. 

After Committee Chairman 
Dean Elizabeth Davey quest- 
ioned President Dr. Harold 
Manor as to existence of such 
liability he contacted attorney 
James Adams. 

Adams replied in "a letter to 
Manor, "After research and 
study, I am of the opinion that 
there is virtually no chance of an 
individual committee member 
incurring, personal liability...", 
adding that although the 
possibility exists of the 
individuals being joined in a law 
suit as parties thereto, he 



believes "they would be 
dismissed by the court upon 
proper motion." 

Adams also said, "Because 
such committee members would 
be acting in good faith to further 
the programs of the college, I 
would assume the Administra- 
tion and the Trustees would feel 
a moral obligation to authorize 
legal defense in their behalf in 
the unlikely event that they were 
included in any such suit." 

Manor hopes the committee 
members will reconsider their 
resignations. 

Committee member Sidney 
Smith has resigned due to a 
conflicting class schedule ren- 
dering him unable to attend 
meetings. 

However Dr. Donald Butter- 
worth, who also has a conflicting 
schedule, intends to remain on 
the committee as he is the only 
music department representa- 
tive. Butterworth said the 
committee can either find 
another meeting time or send 
him necessary information. 



Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) 
initiation for new members 
featured guest speaker Dr. 
Richard Yinger, Exosociologist, 
whose speech covered various 
aspects of PTK' s national theme 
involving "Science". 

PTK's theme is entitled, 
"Man Alive, Can He Survive?". 
Yinger believes a man can 
survive because man's ability 
to dream and imagine his future 
gives him the ability not only to 
survive, but to also control his 
evolution. 

"We speed up the process of 
evolution as we survive as 
humans... and we change the 
nature of evolution,' we can 
control pur own evolution of the 
species," said Yinger. 

Yinger added that the human 
race has the potential to evolve 
into ' 'higher beings " . 

Subsequent to Yinger's ad- 
dress, Robin Wotton, PTK's 
president, recited the "initia- 
tion pledge". The candle 
lighting ceremony then follow- 
ed. 

Congratulations were issued 
by Dr. Paul Graham, vice-pres- 
ident for academic affairs, who 
substituted for Dr. Manor. 
Mr. Francis Barton, PTK 



advisor to the North campus, 
and Dan Hendrix, PTK main

If built, a contract of 100 evenings a year of the 

Performing Arts would come to the theater 
e vciuave of what the college puts on. 

Several authorities in the field that constructs 
this type of theater including an owner, met with 
Eissey and defined the type of complex a 
community like this needs. It calls for two 
auditoriums fa large and a small one), an art 
gallery and a restaurant with a seating capacity of 
400. ' 

Saying, "I'm just amazed at the amount of 
money that is available state-wide," Eissey noted 
that of the 28 junior colleges in the state not one of 
them presented a project to the state legislature so 
they iould raise funds.

"About the best things a man 
can have ate a hound dog and 
some plants," says Fred Holling 
Jr., Coordinator of Continuing 
Education. 

A dog named Kojak and three 
acres to keep lush with palms, 
fruit trees, - "anything that 
grows", provide the "best 
things" for Holling. 

He spends other off campus 
time fishing and "raising kids" 
- he has four sons and a 
daughter. 

Primarily responsible for 
facilitating the campus beautifi- 
cation program, each day 
Holling supervises planting of 
trees and shrubbery around 
campus. 

Holling became interested in 
horticulture while taking a 
biology class at JC. A portrait of 
the class instructor, Mary 
Albertson, who began teaching 
here when the college was 
founded in 1933, hangs on his 
office wall. Holling says 
Albertson was an inspiration. 

After graduating from JC, 
Holling attended the University 
of Florida, where he studied 
ornamental horticulture and 
obtained an M.A. in Agricul- 
ture. While at U of F he 
participated in a student-assist- 
ant program, working with the 
grounds crew. 

Later working for Boynton 
Landscape Co., he gathered lots 
of ideas and practical knowledge 
concerning ornamental plant- 
ing. 

After teaching biology here 
for ten years, Holling became 
Coordinator of Continuing 
Education. He became involved 
in JC landscaping by joining the 
Beautification Committee. 



The committee worked with 
the South Side Kiwanis, 
completing much landscaping 
around the dental hygiene 
building and library. 

Pete Bos was grounds man at 
that time. He did much of the 
administration building land- 
scaping, and also contributed to 
the dental hygiene planting. 
After Bos left, the position was 
discontinued, however, the 
administration is again looking 
for a Supervisor of Grounds. 

Holling works with Claude 
Edwards, supervising the 
grounds crew. 

Much of the work now 
underway is planting foliage 
donated by area nurseries. Dr. 
Edward Eissey, Pres. -elect, has 
been soliciting plants from the 
nurseries and local garden 
clubs. 

Some donors include: Cypress 
Pond Nursery, Delray Beach; 
Ferguson's Nursery, Boynton 
Beach; Earl Christenbury of B & 
B Tree Farms; and McKerral's 
Orchid Range, Hypoluxo. 

Nurseryman and landscape 
contractor, Lloyd Mangus, has 
offered a supply of mature 
trees. John Dance of the Palm 
Beach County Parks Dept. has 
made a proposal to provide 
equipment and a work crew to 
aid in moving the trees, and 
Merle Merchant has volunteer- 
ed use of trucks to transport the 
trees onto campus. 

Holling and the ground crew 
planted 14 live oaks along 
Congress Avenue. They also 
planted 17 maples - two out of 
the originally donated 19 died. 
Holling commented that since 
the trees were bare-rooted, only 
two dying was very good. 

Usually, trees are dug up 

carefully, the roots wrapped

Career seminars atNorth campus 



By Kathy Cavanaugh 
Staff Writer 

"Career Selection Seminars" 
at JC North stimulated 
discussion among students who 
were concerned about the type 
of career they wanted to pursue. 

The seminars, conducted by 
Dr. Ottis Smith, North Campus 
counselor, and AI Meldon, 
social science, instructor, were 
designed by Smith to initiate the 
students' interest in the career 
selectionlprocess. 

"We also wanted to stress 
that college does not guarantee 
jobs to students," Smith said. 

Meldon used Alvin Toeffler's 
book, "Future Shock" to 
illustrate the fact that, because 
of rapid technological changes, 
some people may have several 
careers in a lifetime (after they 
get out of college or even if they 
do not attend college)." 
"Because of job openings, a two 
year degree in paraprofessional 
training and vocational training 
or graduate degrees, are more 
important now than, the straight 
four year liberal arts degrees," 
he added. 

Meldon discussed the follow- 
ing fields which, during the next 
eight years, are predicted to 
have the highest demand rate 
for employees: 

Health Care: doctors, op- 
tometrists, medical l^b technic- 
ians, nurses. 



"This has been described as 
the 'field of the decade,' " said 
Meldon. 

Energy (extraction, creation, 
preservation of environment): . 
geophysicists, biochemists, 
mining and petroleum engin- 
eers. 

Data Processing. 

City Manager (Master's 
degree in Business Administra- 
tion). 

Said Meldon, "These mana- 
gers are needed to bring more 
efficiency into government. . .150 
per year will be needed for the 
next ten years." 

Law Enforcement (at least 
two years of college). 

Business Administration 
(Master's degree). 

Fast Food Restaurant Chains. 

Recreation-Theme- Parks - 
Leisure Time Activities. 

Government Employment 
(health, education, welfare, 
sanitation, protective services). 

Finance-Insurance- Credit- 
" Real Estate. 

The oversupplied fields in- 
clude Law (lawyers), Engineer- 
ing (except for Energy related 
fields), Journalism, Architect- 
ure and Education (except for 
Special Education). 

"If you want to go into an 
oversupplied Field, you must be 
flexible and willing to relocate to 
another area if your job 




NORTH CAMPUS STUDENTS participate in "Career Selection Seminars" conducted by Dr. Ottis Smith, 
counselor, and Al Meldon, social science instructor. The seminars wore designed to initiate students' 
interest in the career selection. 



I demands, ' ' explained Smith. 

The counselor also said that in 
order to decide what career you 
want to pursue, "You must 
continue to ask yourself 'What 
will satisfy me?' and 'What 
degree of. education do I want?' 



■You must decide on a 
direction as soon as possible, or 
else you may get washed out in 
the tide," commented Smith. 

He stressed that students 
must learn how to write 
well-written resume's in addi- 



tion to learning how to project 
their strong points when being 
interviewed for a job. 

"If you don't 'sell yourself to 
the employer, then someone 
else ^s likely to get the job," 
stated Smith.

CRIMINAL JUSTICE BUILDING Phase II, to include gym for self-defense instruction and a classroom for 
automobile search. 

New building construction begins 
an addition to Criminal Justice 



By Charles Loveday » 

Editor 

Ground has been broken for the third phase of 
the Law Enforcement, building complex, first and 
second phases being the Law Enforcement 
structures now existing. 

Chairman of Law Enforcement Dept., Lawrence 
Turtle' said, "The building is functional. 
Everything we have is for use by the students 
and is multipurpose." 

Turtle explained that the building is to contain a 
gyrh for self-defense instruction, a classroom for 
automobile search, locker rooms and showers for 
men and women, closed circuit televisions and 
cameras to give students feedback, mats for 
self-defense practice and demonstration, bleachers 



from which students can view demonstration and 
storage space. 

Gym and instructional areas are to be one large 
room, 60' by 55'. A covered walkway will be part of 
the structure. 

The building will be available for use by other 
departments when law enforcement students are 
not using it. 

Funds for the construction of the building were 
appropriated from the state region 12 training fund 
for the specific'purpose of building the classroom. 
Phase three has an estimated cost of $175,831 . 

Gersch and Bramuchi Construction Co., general 
contractors, are constructing the building. 
Completion is scheduled for early April . 



Adam: Title VI 
act not enforced 

By Emily Hamer 

Editor 
Part 1 of Series 

In 1973 Kenneth Adams, backed by a black organization, sued 
Weinberger, Secretary of the Dept. of Health, Education and Welfare 
(HEW). Adams claimed HEW didn't enforce Title VI of the Civil 
Rights Act of 1964. 

Title VI concerns discrimination against students in educational 
programs on the basis of race, color or national origin. 

The specific issue involved was whether or not 10 states had 
integrated educational systems. The court ruled that HEW hadn't 
enforced its standards and mandated that it do so.- 

Florida, one of the states involved, agreed to comply with the 
ruling by developing a comprehensive plan to assure a 
non-discriminatory educational system. 

As a result, each of Florida's Junior and Community Colleges 
formed an Equal Access-Equal Opportunity Committee (EAEA) to 
monitor an internal plan. 

EAEO is responsible for participation in the "development, 
implementation, evaluation and monitoring of the equal access equal 
opportunity plans and procedures, preparation and review of 
semi-annual reports to HEW" (to be ssbmitted in June and 
December) along with meeting minutes. All college administrators 
also receive the minutes. 

Required to meet at least four times each year, EAEG must hold 
one meeting with President Dr. Harold Manor. 

EAEO's membership consists of at least one person from the 
administration, teaching, faculty, professional staff, classified staff 
and student body, a majority women and minorities. 

This year's committee includes: Chairperson Gwen Ferguson, 
counselor; Coordinator Joe Schneider, director of personnel; Jesse 
Ferguson, assistant registrar; Sunny Meyer, drama instructor; Lisa 
Borbonus, student; James Tanner, coordinator of continuing 
education, South campus; Geraldine . Harris, business 
affairs-bookstore; secretary Alice Zacherl, Belle. Glade asst. director 
of library; and John Jenkins, north campus counselor. 

EAEO has grown from an organization encompassing only race 
discrimination into a concern with discrimination against women and 
handicapped. 

In 1975 EAEO submitted a plan, developed, written by Schneider, 
and reviewed by the committee, to the State Division of Community 
Colleges^ At that time, it was deemed acceptable although it received 
a "limited progress" rating. 

Ratings given by the council to semi-annual reports are 
"Substantial Progress", "Progress", "Limited Progress" and 
"Insignificant Progress." 

The Council noted insufficient specifics and no minority 
recruitment as weak areas in theJune, 77 report. ' 

In a follow-up to the Adams vs Weinberger case (now Adams vs 
Califano), the court ruled HEW was still hot ,enforcmjt

That really shortchanges the 
,- iES -Rclade serious student who is trying to 



develop these skills. 

Creative writing is a case 
where this happened. The only 
thing now available is in an 
upcoming workshop. Students 
out to develop in this field will 
have to wait for anything more 
than a slim offering, long after 
the other classes have begun. 

By now we are all scheduled 
to capacity. Our only hope is 
that it may be offered again next 
term. Without a great demand 
this will net happen. In this way, 
administration can never know 
how many want to take it. 

A late offering can not be 
expected to fill seats with 
serious students. They are 
working in other, unrelated 
subjects by now. How can 
anyone say there is no demand 
when conditions make it 
impossible to take advantage of 



the course? No one keeps 
records on how many have 
inquired or been told it is not 
available at that time. 

Public relations should also, 
be a regular, credited course. It, . 
too, is just now offered as a 
12-week workshop. A future 
repeat is uncertain. Why should 
such a valuable course be 
delegated to a workshop? 

A workshop is inferior to a 
regular course because there is 
no real framework for study. No 
credit is given, no record is 
shown on the transcript. 

Arts and communications are 
an asset for almost any field one 
may wish to enter. They enrich 
and develop personality. They 
enhance awareness of beauty 
around us.

a daily occurrence in the news and streets. We are 
only a step away from it wherever we are. 

How far, then, should the industry bear blame 
for Zamora's sociopathic development? His mother [ 
was well aware of his habits. How far did she go to 
guide him? What responsibility should she bear? 

No matter how the jury rules, repercussions will 
spread out in ever widening circles long after the 
trial is over. 

Chaotic, senseless violence and destruction used 
for shock value alone, should be unacceptable 
entertainment for anyone. How can one wallow in 
mud without becoming dirty? 

The trial now in progress should reflect a new 
view on this type of programming. It could lead to 
a greater sense of responsibility in oar 
entertainment offerings. In time, perhaps finer 
quality programs may be shown for our benefit. 

As of now, the medium has become suspect as it 
hits new lows in taste, morality and values. This 
fall lineup of new programs reinforces our 
conviction. 

Rubin has tossed a "hot potato" into the 
courtroom and at TV. The outcome will have 
profound effect on both phases now on trial. 

At this point, no one knows where we go from 
here. One thing we believe — never again can TV 
assume its air of innocence. The hard truth is that 
our freedom ends when it causes injury to another.

Good entertainment is des-

for new ideas and personalities. 
The power of the media grows 
as communication lines spread.

can degrade. It is one of the 
largest "industries" in our

open the lines of communication 
at any cost, who tell it like it is, - 
whose loyalties always remain 
faithful to the readers— we

The press is our first line of 
information. As a watchdog of 
the nation, it becomes the 
cornerstone of our liberties. 
Without freedom of the press 
we would be in danger of losing 
our other freedoms. 

The first step in the overthrow 
of a government is to muzzle the 
Press and issue, instead, 
propaganda. Without having 

access to truth, people can not 
Protect their rights. 

Incidents of social injustices 
and governmental corruption 
nave been exposed by an alert 
Press. Reporters cover beats' 
that include police stations and 
hospitals .city halls, state

even outer space programs. 
1-oretgn correspondents travel

In bringing a petition signature drive to campus for a new 
bargaining election, two of our instructors raise valid questions 
worth serious consideration. 

Ray Sweet, mathematics instructor, and Bob Book, 
engineering-technology instructor, show commendable concern for 
both fellow workers and the future of JC. 

The points they raise are well taken and worth further discussion. 
We join with them in delving into some of the weaknesses of the 
present bargaining. 

Perhaps their most discerning comment was about the quality of 
our collective bargaining laws. Some recently, enacted laws are even 
worse than the ones Sweet and Book have labeled as poorly- written. 
(Traffic fines is a recent one.) No one could dispute their stand on 
this. This would also confirm our editorial stand on the folly of a 
second round with a special master hearing. 

The law requires it be conducted no matter how futile, according 
to the attorney for administration. The first master hearing was 
fruitless because it had no authority to enforce its 
recommendations. Now the same law spells out we must spend 
another huge sum of money to go through the same motions again. 
Agreed — that may be the law, but it is a poor one. 

Sweet also questioned the unprofessional conduct by the United 
Faculty (UF) regarding news releases, and went on to say he "did 
not like some of the things going on, if what the union says is true, 
but the union tells you only what they want you to know. ' ' 

On the face of it, this again is absolutely true. UF would not be 
good representatives for anyone if they did not observe discretion in 
what they said. ; ,, 

In all fairness, however, we should point out that administration 
is equally guilty of the same practices. Negotiations have been far 
from candid on both sides. 

Administration, as an example, uses public funds for their legal 
costs. Just how much has been spent on legal fees? Jesse Hoggs, 
attorney for the Board of Trustees estimated a special master's 
hearing at a cost of $4,000, pins his own fees. Why not an estimate 
of some sort for his own fees? 

We have never been informed just how much has been spent in 
the last two years, nor how much the attorney has received. Since 
the funding is public, these figures should also be available. 
Administration also ' 'tells only what they want you to know . ' ' 

Sweet and Book are again accurate when they assert they are 
caught in the middle, being "pro" to neither side. This has fringe 
benefits. In the long run, the fight will cost them nothing. No matter 
how the outcome turns out, they will not suffer. Other instructors 
who have not joined fight or union will also reap benefits from those 
who did struggle to upgrade faculty position and working 
conditions. This happens in any struggle or war. Civilians who 
remain at home always benefit from front-line efforts no matter how 
they personally feel about the war. It is an inescapable situation, but 
the middle-man is not always in a bad spot.

Consideration should be given for the reason a 
union gained acceptance in the first place. A 
complete breakdown in lines of communication 
seems to be the responsible factor in the union 
being brought here. 

Individuals could not communicate, nor did 
previous faculty groups succeed. Until we get 
rapport and some sort of accommodation 
between the two factions, there will never be, 
peace and harmony. There will be a continued 
need for some sort of unification by faculty. 
Unions thrive on discord. Administration must 
take its share of the blame for creating an 
atmosphere where unionism was finally 
accepted. 

Again, we agree with our instructors that when 
Ds. Ed Eissey assumes office next fall, there will 
be a fresh start. 
• Eissey is ready to talk and listen. But is it really 
fair to him to bottle this explosive situation and 
hand it to him as soon as he becomes a new 
president? He has fine plans for JC. Must his 
first year in office be blighted with such a 
festering sore? 

What should be done In the meantime? We 
criticise UF for not producing solutions. Are we 
not also wrong to suggest we wait for a new 
president In office to take care of this mess? 

For Dr. Harold Manor's sake, we had hoped 
that his last year in office would end on a happier, 
note. He has given a large part of his life to 
development and growth of this college. It would 
only be fitting for him to retire on a happy note, 
with good relations in all areas he touched. 

Manor claimed that when registration was 
turned over to computers instructors lost their 
paid time for this function. 

Administration granted itself a sizable pay 



increase at the same time they cut back on 
teacher's annual income. No matter how it is 
explained, results come out the same- the faculty 
loses. At no time has administration admitted 
there' was, in fact, a cut in final annual earned 
income. 

If salary cuts are made because of contract 
changes, then by the same reasoning, duty witli 
extra activities should he granted extra pay. 
Instructors should not be expected to donate 
personal time to school-related activities. 

No one claims the present bargaining situation 
is effective. There is little hope for any real 
settlement. But to abolish one faction to break a 
stalemate is not a solution, either. If UF cannot 
negotiate, what hope can there be for any other 
group representation to do better? 

The only way to break a stalemate in a fan- 
manner is for both sides to give up some. 

Today we have two packages of "demands and 
conditions." Administration has taken the stand 
that it is all or nothing. Not a single item can be 
touched until there is fuil accord on their entire 
position. 

Editorially, we have also been in the middle, 
like Sweet and Book. However, answers like the 
above do not sound logical or reasonable. If both 
sides take the same position, we shall never get 
anywhere. Both the present administration and 
the future president have indicated this position 
is what must be followed to the bitter end. To 
abolish union activities would restore us to the 
old position that created a need for a union that 
started it all. We would actually be going around 
in circles. Two years and thousands of public 
funds thrown out. 

It is still true, it takes two to make a quarrel. 
And it takes two to make a peace. 



SG executives foil to follow constitution 



It may come as a surprise 
to know we have illegal 
Student Government (SG) 
executive officers — they 
were not elected by the 
student body as required. 

Because an election was 
not held, SG failed to comply 
with its own Constitution. 

"All unopposed candi- 
dates for executive office 
shall be required to obtain at 
least fifty per cent of the 
votes casT;. If a candidate 
fails to receive this vote of 
confidence, then a new 
election shall be declared 
and held," mandates Article 
VI, section 2 sub. E of the SG 
Constitution. 



SG President Sharon 
Christenbury, asked if she 
believed the executive offi- 
cers are in compliance with 
the SG constitution, replied 
"yes". Vice-president, Ron- 
ald Pugh stated, "I feel we 
are in . office legally, 
according to the SG 
constitution". 

For those of you who are 
still in doubt, perhaps only 
the executive officers, the 
Constitution further states, 
"the Executive officers shall 
be elected by an annual 
general election of the 
Student Body..." Article VI, 
section 3. Such an election 
was never held. 



If we are going to believe 
in the credibility of the 
Executive Board it is up to 
them to assure us that they 
understand and plan to 
comply with their own 
constitution, instead of 
circumventing it as done so 
many times in the past. 

We feel that if SG is to 
play a vital role in JC, as it 
should, whether for the first 
time or not, students should 
be given the opportunity to 
vote for officials. 

Students deserve better, 
but, as in the past they have 
no voice in the organization 
created specifically for their 
benefit.

Hi <' ~>\ remedies for a 
^•'."e'» a.ments usually take 



two basic forms: one tries to get 
to the underlying cause of the 
problem and the other provides 
an alternate way of escape. 
Eastern religions usually use 
the second. If we all chose to run 
away, soon there would be a 
world with all problems still 
there, waiting for us. 

The tragic thing about the 
Oriental cults is that, in their 
offer of escape from life, they 
have, instead, become an 
assortment of spiritual products 
for sale to the unhappy religious 
shopper. They have evolved into 
the very thing they profess to 
condemn, commercialism. 

East or West— all are in 
danger of becoming one more 
tempting line of merchandise in 
the moral marketplaces of the 
country. 

Today's youth is not hungry 
for material things nearly as 
much as greedy for experiences 
and feelings. Rootlessness, 
drugs, sounds, mental and 
spiritual experiments and new 
emotions are pursued and 
investigated in the search for 
emotional highs. Excessiveness 



finally palls and new emotions 
must take place. Fascination 
with the East is part of the 
greed as the search goes on to 
stronger spiritual encounters. 

This greediness destroys the 
real meaning of the movements 
and turns the mystic into sham. 
. Oriental sacredness is lost as we 
pervert the rituals to our own 
needs. 

What seems to be a flocking 
toward the East is an 
exploration of a novelty. They 
are the new thrill experiences. 

Our crisis will not be solved 
through strange religions be- 
cause our entire civilization 
shares the crisis. We can not 
find answers somewhere else. 

Our redemption lies here, 
within our own framework of 
beliefs. When we face our 
problems in a mature, respons- 
ible way, we shall find our own 
answers. Only then shall we also 
understand the true message of 
the Orient. 

The real fascination of the 
East lies in an illusion that the 
inscrutable Orient holds secret 
answers for the world. When 
the mysterious becomes famil- 
iar, it will no longer interest. 

The only real truth to be 
found in Eastern teachings is 
that what we seek for in far off 
places is right here at home, and 
has been all the time. 



Legs in vogue this fall 



By Georgia Wink 
Staff Writer 

Today's woman is dressing in a very 
feminine way, going all out with dresses foi* 
every occasion, according to local boutique 
owners. 

Soft lines, pretty prints, ruffles and lace 
are what all the better shops are carrying for 
fall'., through the spring of 1978. 

Donna Vazquez, purchaser for the Potted 
Daisy in West Palm Beach, says that women 
are wearing sexier, more subtle clothing 
than in previous years. "The freaky things 
are out. Soft is in." ^ 

She also believes women are wearing 
more dresses. "All of a sudden,' ladies want 
to be ladies; they want to show their legs." 
And, according to sales, they're doing it with 
very high 'heels. Not clunky platforms, but 
sleeky sandals with carved wooden heels and 
soles. High heels are going well with 
dresses, shorts and slacks. 

A classic, well put together look is what 
today's woman is after. For fall, it's found 
in suede cloth jump dresses with a cowl-neck 
sweater or a T-shirt underneath. 

Rust, brown, gold and green are the colon?-- 
to look for as the fall fashion lines arrive, 

Explains Ms. Vazquez, "People in Florida 



are starved for seasons. The weather doesn't 
change much, so psychologically it helps to 
change their styles." 

Popular accessories include feather combs 
and flowers for the hair. Stoles, capes and 
shawls are being worn to complement an 
array of outfits. 

At Glad Rags Etcetera in Lake Worth, the 
dress is - definitely on top. Women- are 
wearing dresses everywhere, a co-proprietor 
commented. Even at night, a time when 
women wore full-length gowns, the dress is 
becoming more popular. 

Bfing shown more by fashion designers, 
the dress is taking over the pantsuit in 
popularity. 

Through spring, the peasant look is very 
strong. Warm materials are being used, and 
more wool is being included in the 
manufacturing of clothes. 

Climate effects styles. Last year, many 
small businesses were hit hard by the 
sudden cold because they had hot purchased 
a large quantity of warm clothing. 
. This year, sweaters, jackets and coats are 
filling the racks. It may be because they 
expec% cool weather again, or perhaps, as 
they say at Glad Rags Etcetera, "they're so 
much in vogue now." 



Men's fashions are 
comfortable and casual 



Deborah Sellers 
Staff Writer 

Casual, comfortable, classic — this is the 
emerging style of American men today. 

This season, a man has the chance to 
choose the clothes that fit his look, his life 
and his career. The overall feeling is clearly >, 
more relaxed. , 

Sweaters are the substance of fashion this ;■ 
fall. Ranging from the classic V-neck, the 
turtleneck and crewneck to the hooded 
sweater and button-front pull-over. The 
sweater can be layered over sport shirts or to 
complement: the pants. 

Don't expect pants to contribute anything '< 
radical this fall. You'll be seeing trousers? 
with pleats at the waistline. . 

As for suits, there is not much change 
except lapels are narrowing. Shoulders are 
lowering and the over-all fit is loosening up a 
bit. „ 

To accompany this, shirts will have 
smaller collars and ties are slightly 
narrower. 

On the casual side, the western flannel" 
shirt with lumber country plaids will play an 
important role this fall. 






Hl ^^3n s e^atiorror~wanton slaughter 



Outerwear textures include leather, 
corduroy and suede. Total effect is achieved 
by layering and by varying patterns, colors 
and even fabrics. 

An inside tip: it looks like common sense 
is g*ing to be a big seller this season. 
Today's styles are a blend of function and 
i/style. 

Richie Bryer, manager of the three Jeans 

Etc. stores in the area, says, "You'll be 

seeing European cut dress pants worn with 

y nylon engineered plaids and lots of sweaters 

to replace woven knits. ' ' 

About denims, Bryer says, "Plain jeans 
ire jefet as 'in' as novelty jeans, that is, jeans 
with pocket treatments ' and multi-colored 
stitching." 

1 For those of you whe like to dress up a bit, 
Bryer states, "The sporty three-piece suit 
with the reversable vest will be prevalent." 

Clothes that reflect-a "down to .earth" 
look is the theme of this year's fall fashions. 
WhaJ; you wear should reflect the real you. 

Men's fashion has what American men 
can enjoy best - great clothes that are easy to 
wear.

For some, the uniqueness of wildlife 
is captured in a photograph. For 
others, it is captured in a canvas bag. 

The hunter is considered by his 
fellow hunters to be a fine sportsman 
and even a conservationist. 

The non-hunters (not to be confused 
with anti-hunters) consider the hunter 
to be a predator of wildlife. The 
non-hunters fear that the hunter's 
encroachment upon wildlife threatens 
the endangered species as well 
those species who 
becoming classified 
ed". 

As for anti-hunters, they consider 
any killing of wildlife a cruel and 
inhumane action that is morally 
unjustifiable (and the hunted probably 
agree). r J 

However, most anti-hunters tend to 
forget that ,f it were not for man's 
hunting ability centuries ago, man 
would most likely have not survived 
ges. 
arly hunting was solely 



as well as 
are close to 
as "endanger- 



necessary for man's survival and was 
not considered a sport for man's 
enjoyment, as it is today. 

Some hunters hunt because they say 
"it is a way to escape to the outside 
world and a way to get close to 
nature". 
* But tome non-hunters and most 
anti-hunters cannot understand how 
one can enjoy wildlife by shooting at 
it. 

They argue that animals are more 
beautiful when they are running and 
flying through the woods or over the 
waters, than they are dead and 
rotting, or stuffed and hanging on a 
wall or lying on the dinner table. 

John Jones, president of the Florida 
J *Wildli# Association says that the 
"Bambi Syndrome" (which he 
explains as a growing anti-hunting 
sentiment due to the increase in 
popularity of the wildlife shows on 
television) is one of the factors that 
has caused many state agencies to be 
reluctant in allowing hunters the use 
of more land for hunting. 

Those agencies include the 

Department of Natural Resources and 

».the Flotida Audubon Society which 

"consists mainly of non-hunters and 

conservationists. 



It is logical that non-hunters want to ' 
protect wildlife from hunters. Yet 
many non-hunters do not realize that 
most hunters are also conservation- 
ists. 

According to the National Shooting 
Sports Foundation, revenue from fees 
for hunting licenses totals over $142 
million a year. 

The Foundation says this revenue is 
used by state fish and game 
departments and wildlife management 
to help protect and manage wildlife 
including areas where diverse wildlife 
exists. 

Hunter conservationists date back 
to President Theodore Roosevelt's 
time when he founded the famed and 
distinguished Boone and Crockett 
Club which had a strong voice in 
support of early conservation laws. 

John James Audubon (1785-1851), 
after whom the Audubon Society was 
named, was a hunter. 

Although hunters, non-hunters and 
anti-hunters' philosophies differ, they 
all appreciate wildlife. 

Whether those three groups shoot 
wildlife with a camera or a gun has no 
bearing on the fact that they all 
respect wildlife-they just enjoy it in 
different ways. 



flair to his or her appearance. 
They usually rely on bright 
colors, such as blinding white, 
electric blue, hot pink or flaming 
red. These colors are generated 
by a small battery which is sewn 
into the lining of the apparel, or 
neon thread. 

Hats and purses are an 
important attribute to this style. 
Large floppy hats add a touch of 
class and serve the duel purpose 
by obscuring the face. 

Purses allow the bearer to 
carry a piece of artwork, as well 
as serving the traditional uses 
as tote bags and effective 
weapons. 

Platform shoes are big with 
these persons. They allow one to 
attend second floor classes 
while standing in the courtyard, 
as well as taking the shame out 
of being 3'4". 

The slack dresser comes in 
three categories- workers, 
athletes and grubbers. 

The workers are decked out in 
uniforms. The variety is 
endless, and policement, fire- 
men, nurses and gas station 
attendants are included in this 
group. 

The athletes are always 
dressed for action. Tennis 
shorts, baseball caps, football 
jerseys, track shoes and 
sweatbands are common fare. 
Obviously someone dressed in 
this type of outfit is having a 
hard time deciding which sport 
he is capable of handling. 

The grubbers are found in 
T-shirts and jeans, usually 
during proms and weddings .

Old trends in use 



By Don Vaughan 
Venture Editor 

The chic, in-crowd, have 
found over the years that 
fashion is not something to be 
followed, but rather created. 
Fashions change radically from 
season to season, but it has 
been around for quite a while. 
Herein is a brief history of 
fashion. 

People disagree to its actual 
beginnings. Theologists tend to 
favor the "fig leaf" trend of 
early man as the actual 
beginnings, but scientists (and 
most atheists) feel that it began 
with Oookaga Dior, the great, 
great, great, great (plus a few 
more) grandfather of- the late 
Christian Dior, who discovered 
the' mastadon pelt dressing 
gown. 

It became the rage, and was 
worn to the best of tribal 
slaughterings. Oookaga Dior 
later went on to invent the 
sabertooth tiger skin jump suit 
and turtleshell socks for wear 
during the frequent lava floods . 

Fashion changed little over 
the next couple million years, 
then it leaped forward with the 
invention of the raincoat by 
Noah. The public bought it up, 
and it was soon followed by 
galoshes and leisure water- 
wings. 

During the 1300's, a Spanish 
influence in religious clothing 
could be noticed. Tee shirts with 
phrases like "We have ways of 
making you confess!" and 
"Make it tighter! Tighter!!" 
became a staple of the young. 
Long-armed dinner jackets and 



gloves with holes for thumb 
screws came into fashion about 
that time, too. 

A sudden reduction of the 
color red was evident in the 
Colonies during the American 
Revolution. And in the 1860V 
the two main colors in most 
dress uniforms was grey and 
blue. This trend disappeared 
quickly. 

Boots, hats and -other 
frivolous accessories enjoyed a 
return during World War II. 
Swastika armbands, miscellan- 
eous eagles, clusters of wheat, 
meaningless ribbons and tiny 
mustaches could be seen 
everywhere. For the complete 
outfit, a luger was a must. An 
oriental influence was the trend 
on the other side of the world. 

The 50's saw a rise in' 
casualness for the young. Jeans, 
torn tee-shirts, slicked back hair 
and motorcycles were popular. 
Boys wore these, too. 

Lengthy skirts, saddleshoes 
and bobbisocks. came into vogue 
during this time, also. Irving- 
socks, Harveysocks and Wil- 
bursocks were introduced by an 
enterprising clothing manufact- 
urer, but they failed to catch on. 

The 60' s realized a "complete 
lack of care in clothing. 
Anything could be worn, and 
usually was. Sunday best was 
usually the jeans with least 
number of stains on it. 

Disco is the craze in the silly 
70's. More a show than fashion, 
disco clothes are usually passed 
off by fashion experts as 
clothing for' the temporarily 
insane.

tightly with burlap and pinned 
with nails - a process called 
balling and burlapping, says 
Holling. 

Bare rooting is just digging 
up a tree and moving it. 

The grounds crew treated the 
holes the trees were planted in 
with mill organite, and watered 
them often. Holling says if they 
had dried out, the trees would 
have died within two days. 

The crew also planted queen 
palms along the 6th Ave. 
entrance with mahogany trees 
behind them to help buffer the 
wind. Between the trees are 
oleanders, which bloom in 
spring providing a "mass of 
color". 

Holling supervised planting 
of two palms in front of the 
administration building, placing 
them in the ground in a V-shape 
so that they will grow into an 
arch. 



He also plans to plant date 
palms and oleanders along 
Congress as a focal point in the 
center of the line of oaks. 

A screenhouse constructed at 
the physical plant contains 
orchids donated by McKerral's 
Orchid Range. 

Holling is training a work 
study student to work with the 
orchids-fertilizing, spraying 
with fungicide and reporting 
them for sale to the public. 

"Some people think nothing 
ever gets done at JC, but that's 
really not true," says Holling. 

In reference to talking to 
plants, Holling commented, 
"Well, I guess I do. The nice 
thing about plants is that they 
don't talk back." 

Dr. Eissey said of Holling, 
"The best thing I did when I 
started this (the campus 
beautification project) was to 
appoint Holling as coordinator- 
he's excellent - he really is."

ENTHUSIASTIC SCIENCE CLUB members canoe down Loxahatchee River during recent trip 

Eissey tours solar campus 



To investigate the possibility of solar heating 
and cooling for JC campuses, President-elect Dr. 
Edward M. Eissey visited the Community College 
ofDenver(CCD)Oct-28. 

CCD is an institution that uses a solar energy 
system. With aid from the Colorado State 
government, the college researched the cost of 
initiating solar heating and possible savings of the 
system in 1973. 

Construction of a satellite campus incorporating 
solar heating and cooling devices was completed in 
1975. The campus was state funded. 

Raber Kula, director of planning for the project 



at CCD escorted Eissey around the campus and 
explained the system' s operation. 

Eissey says he is impressed with the campus and 
the statistics showing the merit of the solar energy 
system. 

"That's the way we're going to have to go," said 
Eissey, adding, "In the near future the fossil fuels 
will be so costly that we won't be able to afford 

them." 

i 

Eissey said he hopes to get Federal funds for any 
structures with solar heating and cooling 
constructed on JC campuses. 



A tenative date has been set for the Science Club's tubing trip 
down the Icheetucknee River. 

On the afternoon of Oct. 14, those taking the trip are to leave from 
the school parking lot on the five hour drive to Oleno. 

The tube ride begins the following morning. 

Details concerning the trip are to be published at a later date. 
Those students interested may contact Glen Marstellar, Science Club 
sponsor. 

Organization was stressed at Wednesday's meeting by newly 
elected president Bill Kelly, who said, "In order for people to achieve 
maximum enjoyment of this club we need to get organized. At this 
point, there's too much confusion." 

Karen Olszewski was appointed to head the bake sale committee. 
Her duties entail organizing and securing necessary permits for bake 
sales on campus. 

Appointed head of the car wash committee was Walter Thompson. 
His duties are to organize car washes in an effort to procure money 
for the club's field trips. 

Club sponsor Glen Marstellar commented on the need for members 
to attend ICC meetings. "We are a club which has always needed 
more than the original ICC club allotment. We must have strong 
representation." 

Saturday, Sept. 17, 35 people canoed down the Loxahatchee river. 
67 people had originally signed up for the excursion so club members 
provided for a larger crowd than participated. 

Newly elected officers are: Bill Kelly, president; Byron Lobsinger, 
Vice president; Shari Annas, treasurer; Jim Husky, secretary; Karen 
Olszewski and David Kitches, historians.

School auditorium. 

"This is the first time our 
band has appeared at Twin 
Lakes High School," Pryweller 
said "We'll be featuring our 



50-piece wind ensemble (our 
bandsmen come from all over 
the area with several from out of 
state) in an exciting program for 
all those who love band music," 
the director added. 

Selections include Clifton

him. 



JC was the only junior college in the nation of 
the four educational institutions chosen by IBM to 
demonstrate Data Processing procedures. 

The demonstration performed to 32 professors 
from 24 countries illustrating the IBM 370 
computer. 

The tour was sponsored by IBM World Trade 
Americas/Far East Corporation, and coordinated 
by CM. Mcintosh, IBM academic program 
manager with the help of Steve Marinak, local IBM 
representative, hosted by the Food Service and 
Data Processing buildings. 

"It's quite an honor for JC to be selected as one 
of the colleges, the high point, you might say of the 



whole tour," stated Dale Washburn, director of 
Data Processing. 

Washburn gave presentations involving, 
"Overview of Computing at PBJC" followed by 
"The On-line Registration System-Application 
Details" by both Washburn and Jeffery Hunter, 
director of the South Florida Educational

Baseball squad takes 4 out of 5 



By Paul Jenkins 
Staff Writer 

The baseball team got off to a good start, 
playing two doubleheaders against Indian 
River and a single game against Boca 
Raton. They won four of the five games. 

On Oct. 1 they played their first home 
games splitting the doubleheader by 
identical scores of 3-1. 

In the first game, the Pacers started 
quickly. With one out in the first inning, 
Eddie Walker drew a base on balls, moved 
to second on a wild pitch and scored on a 
single by Gerry Continelli. 

The team scored twice in the third, the 
two runs that proved to be the winning 
margin. Joe Chaney reached on an error 



and Contenilli walked putting men on first 
and second with just one out. Scott 
Benedict drove in Chaney with a single 
making the score 2-0. 

The Pacers scored again in the inning 
with back to back singles by Brian Leth 
and Bill Castelli drilling in Benedict. 

That was the last time the team scored, 
but it was enough as four Pacer pitchers, ■ 
Ted Adkins, Bob Garris, Leland Wright, : 
and Bob Charron, combined on a five; 
hitter. . 

The second game was not as successful 
for the team, even though they got off to a 
quick start again. 

Tom Howser went to first after having 
been hit by a pitch. He moved to second on 
a walk to Eddie Rivera. He then went to 



third on a wild pitch and scored on an error 
by the catcher. 

After that, it was down hill for the Pacers 
as they managed only two hits in the game, 
both singles by Roy Alvarex and Bob 
Hewitt. 

Indian River managed only four hits, but 
they were able to capitalize on wildness by 
the Pacer pitchers, who walked seven 
batters, to score three runs. 

On Sept. 24, the Pacers traveled to 
Indian River for a doubleheader which they 
swept by scores of 6-1 and 3- 1 . 

The Pacers scored six runs in the second 
inning of the first game, on two singles, 
two walks and two errors by Indian River. 

In the second game, the Pacers scored in 



both of the first two innings and never fell 
behind taking advantage of seven walks. 

Coach Dusty Rhodes was pleased with 
the team's effort. "The first two games we 
used mostly walkons (non-scholarship 
players) and they did a pretty good job," 
he said. 

Last Thursday, the team battled the 
college of Boca Raton. The game did not 
prove to be much of a match as the Pacers 
blitzed the Buccaneers 6-0. 

The Pacers play the college of Boca 
Raton again here today. The team then 
travels to Ft. Lauderdale this Friday to play 
a doubleheader against Broward Central. 

Next the Pacers travel to Florida 
International University Oct. 22 to play a 
doubleheader.

Volleyball team splits triangular match at home 



The women's volleyball team 
split a triangular match this 
week by downing Broward 
Central and then losing to Dade 
Downtown. 

The Pacers started off the 
match which was played here 
last Tuesday by downing 



Broward Central 16-14, 16-14, 
15-8. 

Dade Downtown also stopped 
Broward Central by scores of 
15-9 and 15-1 during the second 
game of the match. 

The Barracudas ended the 
match by topping the Pacers 




15-7 and 15-6. 

"We saw two different teams 
tonight," coach Bobbie Know- 
les said referring to the Pacers 
loss after their impressive 
victory. "The first game we 
were well organized and played 
as a unit. Against pade 
Downtown we seemed unsure of 
ourselves." 

"Overall we were quite proud 
of our team," she added. 

The Pacers had two earlier 
triangular matches. The team 
lost to top ranked Dade South 
15-1 and 15-10 during the match 
played, Sept. 22. Dade 
Downtown also defeated the 
Pacers 16-14 and 15-10. 

The team took its first victory 
on Sept. 27 against Dade North. 
After dropping the first game to 
Broward North 15-12 and 15-13, 
the team came back to defeat 
the Falcons 15-12, 7-15, 5-12. 

The Pacers record now stands 
at 2-4. The team's next match is 
a triangular meet being played 
here Tuesday against Dade' 
South and Indian River. Starting 
time is 6 p.m. 

The team then travels to 
Miami Christian on Thursday 
for a duel match. The Pacers are 
also entered in the Broward 
Central Invitational being play- 
ed this Friday and Saturday.

Soccer club loses in opener 

Playing its first game, the newly formed soccer team lost a 
heartbreaker to the West Palm Beach Soccer Club in an exhibition 
match played here Oct. 2. 

The team jumped out to an early 2-0 lead on two goals by 
player-coach Gino Jimenez. 

WPB fought back to tie the game at 2-2 at the end of the first half. 
They added another goal in the second half to bring-the final score to 
3-2. 

"Overall, everybody did a great job. We are moving all the time 
and our defense is looking better," Jimenez said. 

"We made some foolish mistakes but we're still inexperienced. 
We'll get better," he added. - 

The Palm Beach County Soccer League is holding a tournament in 
preparation for the regular season which starts in January . 

The JC squad is to be one of eight teams involved in the 10 week 
tournament. Half of the games are to be played here.

It is no secret that men's tennis coach Hamid 
Faquir was disappointed with the sixth place finish • 
that his team took in the state last season. 

To strengthen the team, Faquir went on a 
recruijting binge that not only brought him some 
top area talent, but also a player from England and 
one from Antiqua. 

Gerry Trinder of Andover England and John 
Meginley of Antiqua are presently battling for the 
No. 1 position on the team along with Paul. 
Vishnesky. 

Trinder, who has been playing competetively 
since the age of 12, was ranked 20th in England 
last year in the 21 and under age bracket. 

Meginley was Antigua's Junior National 
Champion last year. He is currently the third 
ranked player in the Commonwealth Carribean. 

Trinder has never been to the United States until 
two months ago, but Meginley has had experience 
in playing American tournaments; During the past 
year he played in Virginia and Maryland. 

Trinder and Meginly are nbwroomates and are 
working together to help the Pacer team. 

Much of the credit? for bringing the two here 
should go to former Pacer players Clive Rothwell 
and Bob Readisch. ' 



Rothwell, also a British player, met Trinder in 
England. Rothwell told Faquir about the fine 
prospect he had found. Faquir preceded to write 
to Trinder and ask him about coming to J.C. 

"Coming to the United States seemed like a 
good idea so I said yes", commented Trinder. 
Meginley came here under similar circumstances. 
Readisch is a tennis instructor at one of Antigua's 
hotels. He met Meginley and suggested that he 
get in touch with Faquir. Meginley sent Faquir a 
resume and was answered with a scholarship offer. 

So far the signing of the two players has paid off 
if Faquir's optimism is any indication. 

"They're both great players," Faquir said. "It 
will be an extremely tough decision for the No. 1 
position between them and Vishnesky . " 

Everyone on the team is looking forward to a 
successful season. 

"I haven 't seen the other teams in this area yet 
but I feel that we'll be tough to beat," Meginley 
said. "Some of the players are already talking 
about nationals. '£". \ .^ :■;. 

Although there is heated competition between 
the two it does not affect their friendship. 

"We get along very well," Trinder said. 
"Although, we're not very; good friends on the, 
court, we are great friends off the court."

'All remains master of the ring 



By Jim Swann 
Staff Writer 

Muhammed Ali, heavyweight 
champion of the world, found 
out that acorns are not always 
easy to crack. 

Earnie Shavers, not known for 
being a distance fighter, gave 
Ali his best struggle since the 
Jimmy Young fight. The 
scheduled 15 rounder went the- 
distance as Shavers paced 
himself towards that goal. Many 
experts feel that this was where 
he- lost the battle. Instead of 
taking the fight to Ali earlier, he 
was too intent on going the 
distance.

The big difference came in 
the fact that the aging Ali, 
despite his slowing reflexes, 
was still on top of the situation 
at all times. Shavers was able to 
rock Ali, but he was unable to 
capitalize on the opportunities. 
'Ali, the master of tactical 
boxing, would hide, tie Shavers 
up or do just about anything to 
keep Shavers from getting that 
second deadly punch in. 

Shavers, who is known for his 
knockout ability, fought the kind 
of fight it takes to put pressure 
on Ali. He would not listen to 
All's taunting and kept himself 
cool and his head straight 
throughout the fight . 

Ali is an expert at 
out-psyching opponents but 
Shavers would not let himself be 
tricked into playing Ali's game. 
Instead he was able to fight his 
own style and put pressure on 
the champ. 

Ali's great boxing experience 
came out in this confrontation 
whereas in previous fights he 
has looked like more of a 
showman than a champion 
fighter. 

The fight had been billed as 
the demolition expert vs. trie 
tactician. Shavers, the all-time 
KO leader with 52 knockouts in 
54 wins, was hoping to add the 
crafty Ali to his - string of 
flattened opponents which 
includes Jimmy Young. Ali had 



different thoughts, as he would 
never let Shavers land his 
devastating punch. 

Ali, who is a living replica of 
the egotistical Apollo Creed 
from the movie "Rocky", was 
able to keep the crowd involved 
at all times with his antics. 
Some of which included rubbing 
the acorn, Ali's nickname for 
Shaver's bald.head, taunting his 
opponent and even the crowd at 
times. Ali proved he is not only 
a great ring general but a great 
entertainer as well. Professional 
boxing would not be the same 
without a controversal figure 
like Ali to keep the fans 
interested. 

The fight turned out success- 
ful in many ways as it proved to 
many experts that Shavers is a 
lot better fighter than people 
had estimated. Ali came out and 
showed his true greatness for a 
change. It was a big audience 
success with a large national 
television following. It was also 
interesting in the fact that it 
featured a different type of

Group inadequately informed 



Major league wraps up controversial season 



By Sherman Donnelly 
Staff Writer 

Everyone has some kind of 
memories of a World Series but 
Baseball Commissioner Bowie 
Kuhn and ABC want to make 
sure we remember their 
version. 

This year, baseball's total 
attendance was a record 38.1 
million people, an increase of 
24% from last year. So ABC 
executives have scheduled five 
of the seven games at night to 
get a- vital prime-time audience 
in the East. And like last year, 
the fans and players in the East 
and Midwest can shiver along 



with Bowie Kuhn during these 
cold October night games. 

But baseball had a great 
season filled with controversies 
and rivalries between the 
teams, players and owners. 
Even the press was second- 
guessing all season trying to 
show the inevitable problems of 
some of the more famous teams 
to an unsuspecting public. 

Last March, former Texas 
Ranger Lenny Randle slugged 
his manager Frank Luchessi 
unconscious before an exhibi- 
tion game in Orlando. He was 
fined, traded to the New York 
Mets and later "slapped with a 
civil lawsuit. 



In June, New York Yankee 
Reggie Jackson almost came to 
blows in the dugout with his 

feisty manager, Billy Martin, 
after failing to hustle during a 
nationally televised game with 
the Boston Red Sox. 

A majority of the high'priced 
"free-agents" that were signed 
by hopeful owners and teams 
were big disappointments. 

But the fans and hitters had 
an exciting year with the 
"livelier ball" providing more 
offense. Rod Carew of the 
Minnesota Twins nearly hitting 
.400 was one example of this. 



There were also more home 
runs and games that were more 
dramatic than ever. 

Now the pitchers, who were 
mostly overlooked this season 
are going to be instrumental in 



stopping the big hitters during 
the World Series. 

Unlike the Super Bowl, a 
game that is over in three hours, 
we can see one more week of 
summer in mid-October.

Faculty petition rejected by PERC 



"It's the classic example of the 
bureaucratic mind," said English 
instructor Edward J. Crowley when asked 
what he thought of the Public Employees 
Relations Committee (PERC) refusing to 
a«cept the petition for the decertification 
of the United Faculty <UF). 

Crowley and Mathematics instructor- 
Raymond W. Sweet explained that PERC 
had rejected the petition on a 



technicality. 

PERC refused the petition stating, 
"...the original signature sheets provided 
by the petitioners are attached in such ai 
fashion that it is not apparent' whether 
those persons whose signatures are 
attached had the benefit of the 
information stating the purpose of the 
signatures." 

Signatures on the decertification 



petition were not dated, another reason 
for refusal of the petition. 

The technicality was one that could be 
easily cleared up when PERC conducted 
the required investigation and confirma- 
tion of signatures, added Sweet. 

The petitioners have begun circulation 
of another petition, which they feel will 
meet all requirements. 

This second petition is in four parts and 



has all articles of the petition stated on 
each page, thus enabling each page to be 
circulated separately and as the 
individual petition. 

Sweet said the articles on the petition 
have been reworded, but the 
"philosophy" hasn't changed a bit. 

Crowley and Sweet are expecting the 
same success in obtaining signatures for 
the second petition as had with the first.

ICC board threatens to quit 



By Patrick Heffeman 
Staff Writer 

Shoddy public relations and promotional 
^procedures for the Inter-Club Council (ICC) picnic 
resulted in the verbal resignation of ICC's 
Executive Board. 

The decision for the board's resignation came as 
the result of an Oct. 14 meeting at which it was 
learned the Bread and Board Club had raised 
barbecue tickets $1.50 higher than what was 
officially sanctioned as a price. 

ICC secretary Fred St. Laurent, who was also 
promotion manager for the picnic, stated, "The 
main reason for the Executive Board's resignation 
is that since we have no vote, we have lost 
effectiveness as an executive board. This is the 
only drastic action to deal with a situation like this. 
What we are doing is swaying other clubs in their 
decision to deal with Bread and Board." 

ICC Chair person Ana Govoni said, "The reason 
we cancelled the barbecue was because they 
(Bread and Board) were making it a Bread and 
Board function instead of an ICC function which it 
was supposed to originally be." Bread and Board 



wanted to make a profit on their own and not share 
it with the other nine clubs. 

But members of Bread and Board disagree, 
saying the dollar-and-a-half was for the high cost 
of catering (transporting & cooking) the food. 

At the meeting in which ticket sales and the low 
attendance by the clubs were discussed, St. 
Laurent made a speech in which he recommended 
the clubs vote on cancellation of the social 
gathering after the disclosure of profiteering. 

Of the five organizations present, only one, the 
Science Club, voted against not having the outing, 
leaving a majority vote against the picnic. At this 
time, St. Laurent made recommendations that 
Bread and Board be fined and suspended from ICC 
for a year. 

A month ago when ICC devised the picnic, they 
asked if Bread and Board would cater. Bread and 
Board agreed, and ICC was to provide 
entertainment. Bread and Board indicated the per 
person-price would be $1.25. This was supposedly 
without a breakdown of the cost. 

"Then I asked Bread for a breakdown but they

Instructors denied joint position 



ByDonVaughan 
Venture Editor 

The old adage that two heads 
are better than one apparently 
doesn't hold true, at least in the 
eyes of the Palm Beach Board of 
Education. 
a. JC instructors William Flory 
and William Wilson filed a joint 
application for the position of 
palm Beach County superinten- 
dant of schools, only to be told it 
was illegal. 



"It was a humanitarian 
approach," said Flory. "We 
were going to combine our 
talents and share the duties and 
responsibilities with only one 
salary. What little increase we 
would have had in income 
wouldn't have taken care of the 
added problems and work. ' ' 

"The job needs someone 
educationally-oriented," added 
Wilson, "and the systemneeds 
improvement. We feel that the 



job needs a bigger scope than 
one person can give it." 

According to Flory, reaction 
to their attempt ranged from 
"novel idea" to "foolish." "We 
weren't fooling around," 
stressed Wilson. "We were 
serious." 

Serious or not, it is apparent 
that the Board of Education 
wants a loner for the position. 
Two heads may be cheaper than 
one, but who would get the 
desk? 



Beachcomber staff lias deci- 
ded it must continue on an every 
other week publication schedule 
because of lack of adequate 
funding. 

The paper noted in the last 
issue funds, and number of staff 
members as two reasons for 
consideration of the production 
cut. 

The added burden of a 
reduction in Student Activity 
Fees (SAF) received from 
satellite campuses and the 
over-estimation of other reven- 
ues by the 74-75 staff were the 
deciding factors. 

Staff and consultant also note 
that along with the cut in 
number of issues for this year 



there is to be an overall 
reduction in spending. 

Among the items mentioned 
for possible cuts are: honor- 
ariums, subscriptions to period- 
icals, new equipment, mailing 
list (sending 'Comber to other 
publications and individuals not 
on campus) and trips to 
workshops. 

The 'Comber lias in the past 
sought financial aid asking the 
Board of Trustees for grant-in- 
aids and will continue to do so in 
the future. 

Past attempts have been 
unsuccessful. 

Attempts are to be made to 

increase ad revenues, though 

the paper lacks an 1 ad manager

Blood Drive, sponsored by Sales and Marketing 
Club [DECA], brought in 57 pints of blood. 

Last year, on one occasion they received 60 pints 
over a period of two days and on the second occasion 
only 40 pints were collected over a two-day period. 

"I think the drive went very well considering that 
out of 83 students trying to give blood 57 were 
elegible. Next term we hope to have a greater 
turnout," stated DECA president Dana Bathurst. 

The mobile unit donated by the Palm Beach Blood 
Bank was set up near the Beachcomber office. 

Blood donated is to be used for the benefit of the JC 
faculty and students if needed anytime in the future. 

If anyone is in need of blood, Dean Paul Glynn has 
asked students or faculty to contact him. 

Pictured left is Diana Zaskowski as nurse takes 
blood.

credit card and driving a rented Cadillac 
that had been recalled by the rental 
company. Covering four counties, his 
charges brought him a two year sentence 
and six months probation to be served 
concurrently. 

"I found a new life one year and three 
days ago. My being incarcerated was the 
best thing that has happened in my life. I 
had to stop dead still and figure out 
where I went wrong." 

Asked if they agreed with this 
statement as it pertained to them, the 
girls were not enthusiastic. As Lynn put 
it, "Sometimes I think it has done me 
good, sometimes 1 think it has done me 
bad." Dorothy sees it as having helped 
her in her life. "There are goals I must 
achieve and I want to reach them before 
I'm old." 

AH three are now living at Lantana 
Correctional Institute (L.C.I. ), maintaining 
full-time employment. Chuck works in 
public relations for the shuttle craft 
program. Lynn is a waitress locally "and 
Dorothy works at night cleaning at 
Burger King. 



Bypass option open 
PERC says it's lega 



Working as a counselor at L.C.I, for 
four and a half years, Charlene Hansford 
arranged. for the inmates to come and 
speak to Law Enforcement students. She 
also answered questions pertaining to her 
work and relationship with the students 
at L.C.I. 

The work release program helps 
inmates save enough money to enable 
them to obtain an apartment or room 
upon release and also gives them a 
reference for future employment. 

It has worked well, with only two or 
three inmates a month taken off the 
program due to disciplinary problems. 

"We take them off the program if they 
are found to be using narcotics or alcohol, 
or if they fight or refuse to work. " 

Employers are expected to treat an 
inmate as they would any employee, and 
can fire them for any legitimate reason. 
"When it is discovered that an employer 
is abusing the inmate because of his or 
her position in society, we take that 
inmate off the job immediately and help 
them find other employment," Hansford 
explains. 



When asked if being a convicted felon 
had a detrimental effect on her 
employment opportunities, Lynn said* 
that she had applied at an IHOP and had 
been hired by a manager who was 
knowledgable of her charges. "The next 
day, she called up and said the owners 
wouldn't let her hire me because of my 
■charges." 

Job opportunities may be slim, but 
employers who have had good previous 
experiences with the program call the 
center when they need help. * 

Two of the three inmates are high 
school graduates and the one who isn't 
obtained her G.E.D. diploma. 

Dorothy is the mother of a little girl 
who lives in Miami with Dorothy's 
mother. "I'm moving back to Miami 
when I get out and I hope to be treated 
like a human and not just an ex-convict," 
she determinedly told those around her. 

"I was living in St. Petersburg before * 
my arrest, but I want to live here (in P.B. 
county) when I get out," stated Lynn, 
who doesn't have any definite goals other 
than to get out and stay free and happy. 

Chuck who hopes to continue working 
in the public relations field said, "I was 
47 years old when I was arrested. I'm 
going to go out there and make some 
money." When asked if he could survive ,, 
another business failure without 
drinking, he said, "I know lean doit." 

All three had different lifestyles, are 
still different people and expect to 
achieve different lifestyles again, but all 
three agree on one thing, they don t 
want to return to prison. Dorothy looked 
serious and formulated her words with 
deliberation, "Doing time is really 
something.Everything is gone, including 
your freedom. All you're doing is just ? 
sitting there, doing time."

EDTTORUL 

Religion: born again 

"I found it" bumper stickers spread everywhere, followed by "I 
did it." These originated in a college evangelistic drive in California. 
Personal religion has again become popular and acceptable. 

The then-presidential candidate Jimmy Carter gave added impetus 
to the drive with his "born again" religious stance. Here was a 
soft-spoken, overtly religious southern gentleman, with close ties to 
the earth and an agricultural background. He wore blue jeans 
informally and taught Sunday School. Definitely one we all could 
relate to and consider one of us. 

His assumption to office was soon followed by changes. A few of 
the royalty symbols from past presidencies, such as yachts and 
limousines, disappeared from the scene. 

These luxury items were not disposed of for mere financial reasons. 
It was also a way of humanizing the presidency and demoting it from 
its former aristocratic status. In his own way, Carter was telling us he 
was aware of his responsibilities and the close ties he should have 
with the American people. 

He must be given much credit for inspiring a renewed interest in 
Christian education, no matter what one's personal creed may be. He 
has stimulated an increase in Sunday school attendance. People are 
again looking toward religion for inspiration. 

Numerous American seminaries have reported increased 
enrollments. Trinity Fundemental Divinity Church in Chicago and 
Bethel Seminary Institute in St. Paul are enjoying rapidly increasing 
attendance by men and women. 

For years it seemed our churches were drifting close to the edge of 
extinction. Attendance kept dwindling. Anti-religious movements 
were popular and satanic cults flourished. 

Carter is changing all that. People once again are getting involved 
with morality and mortality. They again seek a belief and code of 
standards by which to live. 

Future historians will likely note his personal, affirmative religious 
influence and inspiration. It could even mark the start of an 
upgraded, perhaps even restored, morality for our country. 

That, in itself, would be a remarkable accomplishment for a 
presidency. 



Beachcomber lacks support 



"The Beachcomber has been 
bi-weekly before and it hasn't 
hurt. We've, even done without 
it." said Dr. Harold Manor, 
voicing his feelings about the 
newspaper publishing every 
other week. 

Manor stated a lack of 
support attitude we feel the 
Board of Trustees and adminis- 
tration is not only applying to 
the paper but many academic 
activities. 

Forensics and 'Comber are 
two activities that have won 
national awards and are being 
sacrificed for athletic organiza- 
tions seldom winning state 
recognition . 

Athletics receive funds more 



than matching its Student 
Activity Fee (SAF) monies from 
the board while academic 
activities receive only SAF 
funds — these in only functional 
amounts. 

As an example, the 'Comber 
must maintain a bi-weekly" 
publication schedule to equalize 
a cut of $3000 in North, South 
and Glades campus SAF 
monies. 

The 'Comber staff has tried 
many times to gain financial 
support from the board, but no 
additional funds have been 
granted. 

We feel the attitude allowing 
activities securing JC national 
recognition to be incapacitated 
must be amended.

A department in the Pentagon 
became so overwhelmed with 
old tiles they became desperate 
for more space. The head of the 
department requested permiss- 
ion to' dispose of the old, dead 
files. 

Permission soon arrived . to 
destroy them, but with the 
admonition to first make three 
copies of anything that was to be 
destroyed. 

While we can't verify the 
truth of i his story, we can affirm 
that the spirit of the law has 
been accurately depicted. The 
extent of useless files in 
Washington defies description. 

We see only a fraction of the 
paperwork actually instigated 
and demanded by the federal 
government. Like the tip of an 
iceberg, only a small portion is 
seen by any individual. 

The overall view of red tape is 
staggering. The cost of these 
requirements imposed on bus- 
iness, farmers and industry is 
immense. The time business 
must spend on these demands is 
eventually paid for by the 
consumer. 

A special panel was set up by 
the government to see if there 
could not be a reduction in 
paperwork. Even our legislators 
became a bit uneasy about the 
masses of forms and reports 
involved in every facet of 
financial transactions. The 
panel recently released their 
conclusions: Federal paper- 
work, they stated, exceeds $100 
billion a year. (This amounts to 
about $500 per U.S. resident.) 

They told of a school that 
disregarded a $4,500 federal 
grant because it would cost 
$6,000 in paperwork to apply. 
They also reported that a family 
must spend 35 hours filling out a 
student aid application. 

The committee did its share 
with 36 separate reports and 770 
recommendations. Half of the 
recommendations have already 
been implemented by the 
government with a $3.5 billion 
saving. 

. The Commission of Federal 
Paperwork concluded that 




unnecessary paperwork is a 
symptom of confused organiza- 
tion, inadequate management 
and poor information practices. 

They confirmed it is a severe 
burden both economically and 
psychologically. 

A "bucket brigade" system 
may be fine in a fire emergency 
wheij no other alternative is 
available. Failure to utilize 
streamlined fast-operational 
administrative methods is 
inexcusable in this day and age. 
Time and money become values 
for institution and for those who 
must comply with excessive 
paperwork. 

We find prime examples right 
here on our campus. Consider 
the multi-stops and multi-steps 
required to cash a 50 cent petty 
cash slip. And the cumbersome 
routine required to get a key 



issued. 

Every! ime a student regis- 
ters, he must sign another 
health card, even though all the 
information may be exactly the 
same as it was last lime. We 
carry forms that are to be 
stamped or initialed in scattered 
offices, which doesn't signify 
anything. 

Big Daddy in Washington is 
checking into his own practices 
and finding they are not 
efficient. 'Perhaps it, would be 
wise for smaller administrations 
to look at their own red tape 
systems. 

Our paperwork here could be 
curtailed to a more efficient 
level. We are well on the way to 
the "big leagues" in unnecess- 
ary duplications. The time and 
money saved could be put to 
better use.

"Princess Bride" - a big hit 

Goldman's novel anadult fairytale 



By Vincent Betz 
Guest Reviewer 

"The Princess Bride", by William Goldman. 
SaNamine Bocks, SI. 45. There is a copy in the JC 
I ibrarv, 

William Goldman, author of "Butch Cassidy and 
the Sundance Kid'* and "The Marathon Man", 
lias constructed a fairy tale for modern readers. 

"The Princess Bride" is an adventure story, a 
fable of mora! values, and a wry commentary on 
human nature; in al! times and places. 

Goldman claims that he has merely rewritten. 
jfici . ondenscd a classic novel by "S. 
Muryenstcrn" which his father had read aloud to 
him. This seems as likely as Nicholas Meyer's 
<.. him that "The Seven Percent Solution" was 
i'. hi ii J iininiig some recently located papers of Dr. 
Wiitsi.n. 

Goldman's books is a wonderful, imaginative 
i vcaii.'i] Like George Lucas, writer and director of 
"Star Wars", Goldman has obviously absorbed all 
she s«:sshand buckle possible from old movies and 
classic adventure novels. 

His main characters are lovingly detailed, and 
i'tven complete, backgrounds. 

There is she Princess, the most beautiful and 
-.'., liiai i;ir( in ail the world. And she Prince, no 



fairy tale concoction, but a completely malevolent 
S.O.B., along with his chief counselor, who is 
researching for the definitive book of torture. 

The Princess is kidnapped early-on by a deadly, 
calculating Sicilian, a Spanish swordsman and a 
giant Turk with the strength often men. 

The kidnappers are implacably pursued across 
ocean, cliffs and desert by the masked man in 
black, reminiscent of Errol Flynn in "The Sea 
Hawks." 

All through the medieval melodrama, Goldman 
intrudes with anachronistic comments, criticisms of 
"S. Morgenstern's" writing faults, and historical 
asides. 

The total effect of "The Princess Bride" is of 
the middle ages, re-written with touches of "Catch 
22", the Marx Brothers and Saturday afternoon 
cliff-hangers. It's about love, hate, faith, fury, 
fearsome countrysides and castles, duels, poisons, 
deadly beasts;, quicksand, miracles, good and evil - 
everything that really matters. And it's funny! 

Go|dman has given full range to his remarkable 
talents, and created a very special book that should 
appeal to a variety of readers. 

This reviewer found it an ingenious and 
delightful book. - one of those rare ones that keeps 
you reading on and on into the late hours, to see 
how it all comes out.

The presidential proposal that 
new energy sources should not 
be price-regulated has stimula- 
ted much industrial interest. 
Free enterprise may yet turn the 
corner for our energy dilemma. 

The first test well this spring 
b> Chevron Oil brought up 10? 
cubic feet of methane per 
barrel, which is a great deal 
more than the ERD.Aand other 
tjentogisis expected. This month 
the' Louisiana code regulating 
ownership-development will be 
issued to clarify legal status. 
Several companies have shown 
much interest. 

The new methane— a chief 
dement of natural gas used in 
homes and offices — is 
dissolved in water up to 500 
decrees F. from 12.000 to 25.000 
feci underground. Gushers of 
^as-saturated hot water have 
plagued oil drillers for years 
because they ruined convent- 
ional wells. Interest developed 
alien new gas prices began to 
rise, 

Stripping water from oil is an 
easy process and the eventual 
cos.! i-o consumer is estimated to 
he close to oil prices and onlv 
ont,'-thtrd of the cost of electric 
putt er. The hot water part of the 
gusher can be used to run 
electric generating turbines and 
as process water in factories. 
bringing costs down even 
further. 

Most experts agree that at 
least live per cent of the total 
reserves can be recovered, with 
a nsuss conservative estimate 
thai (his live percent would 



equal 255 trillion cubic feet. 
This far exceeds today's proven 
gas reserves. 

With a government crash 
program. Dr. Paul H. Jones, 
Louisiana State University 
geopressured gas expert, states 
that three trillion cubic feet 
could be in production by 1985. 
This would mean a cut of 25% in 
coal consumption and another 
20 per cent cut if the hot 
geothermal water from the same 
wells were utilized. 

ERDA has one test well with

Further legislation is needed

Teenybopperism-new scourge of nation 



By Don Vaughan 
Venture Editor 

A new scourge has spread through the land, the dreaded 
disease of Teenybopperism, more commonly known as-.Tjj. 
Striking all races and economic classes, Tb affects millions of 
teenage girls annually. 

You can spot the victim of Tb at a glance. They wear 
bright Hawaiian shirts and faded blue jeans. A "cigarette 
dangles from their lips, held in place by layer after layer of 
ruby red lipstick. 

In one hand is a bottle of Pepsi, in the other a list of phone 
numbers of the entire football team. 

Their rooms are plastered with posters of Donny Osmond, 
Leif Garrett, Peter Frampton and Kiss. They listen to Andy 
Gibb records and own a complete collection of Shaun 
Cassidy's greatest hits, both of them. 

Teenybopperish victims swarm to McDonald's until the 
establishment is knee-deep in giggling 14-year-olds who 
titter when men and boys walk by and swear a lot in hopes of 
impressing people. Occasionally words like "keen" and 
"neat" escape their lips. 

Says Dr. Ima Jerque, of the National Disease Institute in 
Atlanta, Georgia, "Tb is a killing disease that is very 
communicable. There is no known cure for it yet, though 
millions of dollars are spent on research annually. 

"Presently, the only thing we can do is put the victim in 
quarantine and if they get progressively worse, shoot them. 
It's the only merciful thing to do." . 

But there are detractors of Dr. Jerque's concepts. Many 
physicians believe Tb can be cured through therapy, with 
tender, loving care being carefully mixed with brutal pain. 

Though going cold turkey out of Tb is said to be worse 
than kicking heroin, girls have done it. Little Mary Jane 
Sweetness is one of those girls. 



"It was terrible," recalls Mary Jane. "The disease struck 
before I even knew it. Suddenly I found myself liking disco 
music and unconciously dancing in my living room. 

"I felt uncontrollable urges to go out and spend all rny 
money on Shaun Cassidy records and ruby red lipstick. I 
became boy crazy, chasing jocks with the mentality of a 
banana. But I couldn't help myself, I was powerless to stop 
the disease from running rampant through my system." 

Little Mary Jane Sweetness was one of the lucky ones. 
Her nwSher recognized the symptoms of Tb and sent Mary 
Jane to a specialist, who perscribed a strict regiment of 
equal portions of responsibility and maturity. 

"It was tough," says Mary Jane with a twinge of pain. 
"At first it almost killed me. My mother tied me up and 
shattered my record collection right before my eyes. 

"Then she stuck a mop in my hand and, standing over me 
with a bull whip, made me mop the entire house, including 
the roof, it was horrible." 

It was hard, but Mary Jane stuck through it, and today 
she is a responsible woman with a lovely .home and family. 
When she is not doing volunteer work at the local leper 
colony, she hosts women's auxilary, teas and works nights 
forthe*PTA. - % 

"I've never been happier," she says with a twinkle. 

But there are girls who never get treatment, spending 
their lives with the disease spreading through them until it 
reaches the advanced stages and they die of Coca Cola 
overdose and starvation when their lips stick together from 
too much lipstick. It isn't a pleasant death. 

As Dr. Jerque said, there is no known cure, but you can 
help them find it. Send your donations to N.A.R.T. (the 
National Association for the Removal of Teenybopperism), 
to DofrVaughan's mailbox, The Beachcomber, PBJC. Thank 
you.

Kiss evokes mixed feelings 



In 1974, "Kiss" was released 
to mixed reviews. There were a 
few good songs on the album, 
including "Firehouse", the 
song which features a spitting 
routine done by Simmons and 
"Black Diamond", the tour de 
force which ends all of their 
concerts. 

Seven months later, their 
second album, "Hotter Than 
Hell", was released. It was not 
much better than the first album 
and likewise didn't sell well. 

About six months later, their 
third album, "Dressed to Kill" 
hit the record racks. The songs 
on it were, to say the least, 
forgettable, but it contained the 
original version of "Rock and 
Roll All Night." 

During all this time, Kiss 
toured the country non-stop. 
Nearly 300 gigs a year, taking 
time off only to record. They 



By Perry Jayasekera 
Venture Columnist 

KISS - the mere mention of 
the name elicits either total 
hatred or fanatical adoration. No 
other group has captured the 
consciousness of American 
youth like Kiss. 

Their story begins in 1973, in 
the borough of Manhattan. Paul 
Stanley (rhythm guitar) and 
Gene Simmons (bass) were 
disgusted with the variety of 
useless bands they had been 
playing in, so they decided to 
form a band that would blend 
hard rock with great stage 
theatrics. 

At the same time, drummer 
Peter Criss had just left his 
previous group and put an ad in 
Rolling Stone saying that he was 
a drummer who would do 
anything to make it big. 
Simmons saw the ad and called 
Criss. They found that they had 
same ideas about music and 
theatrics, so Criss became their 
drummer. 

The trio rented a loft on 23rd 
Street in Manhattan and began 
three months of rehearsals. Now 
ready for another member, they 
advertised in a local paper for a 
lead guitarist. 

After a few weird, talentless 
guitarists had auditioned, a 
drunken Ace Frehley came in, 
played a few songs and was 
hired. The hard work was yet to 
begin. 

They made costumes, des- 
igned a logo and style of 
make-up, printed posters and 
tickets, played self-promoted 
concerts and club dates and, in 
general, hustled their idea to as 
many people as possible. 

They even sent press 
releases, tickets and invitations 
to anybody who was important 
in the record business. One of 
those invitations found its way 
into the hands of Bob Aucoin, 
who was the producer of a 
syndicated TV rock program, 
called "Flipside." 
Aucoin attended their July 4 
concert in the Crystal Room of 
the Diplomat Hotel in New 
York. He liked what he saw and 
signed them to a management 
contract. Two weeks later, 
Aucoin got Neil Bogart, who 
was just starting Casablanca 
Records, interested in the group 
to sign them to a record 
contract. The first step had been 
taken.

Staff Writer 

Mrs. Conclusion: Hello, Mrs. Premise! 
Mrs. Premise: Ooh, hello, Mrs. Conclusion! 
Mrs. C: Busy day? 

Mrs. P: Busy! I just spent four hours burying the cat! 
Mrs. C: Four hours to bury the cat? 

Mrs. P.: Yes, he wouldn't keep still, wriggling about and howling. 
Mrs. C: Oh, it's not dead, then. 

Mrs. P.: No, no, but it's not a well cat and as- we're going away for a 
fortnight, I thought I'd better bury it, just to be on the safe side. 
Mrs. C: Quite right. You don't want to come home from Sorrento to a 
dead cat, now, do you? 
Mrs. P.: Yes... 

Mrs. C: We've decided to have the budgie put down. 
Mrs. P.: Oh, is he very old, then? 
Mrs. C: No, we just don't like it. 
Mrs. P.: Oh, how do you put budgies down? 

Mrs. C: Well, it's funny you should ask that. I've been reading a 
great big book on how to put your budgie down, and evidently you can 
either hit them with the book or shoot them right there, above the 
beak. 

Mrs. P.: Mrs. Essence flushed hers down the lavoratory. 
Mrs. C: Oh, that's dangerous! They breed in the sewers and 



followed the same touring 
pattern as Aerosmith, being 
third-billed or a support group' 
for big names then stealing the 
show from the headliner. 

This heavy touring made Kiss 
successful because [hey had no 
hit singles, no hit albums, no 
heavy radio play and no big 
radio company to support them. 

By 1975, Casablanca was 
broke. They had lost a lot of 
money on some disco-soul 
records and were spending 
$10,000 a week to keep Kiss on 
the road. It was rumored that 
Bill Aucoin financed the entire 
1975 tour on his Bank 
Americard. 

Then "Alive" was released. 
The two-record set established 
them on a national basis. It went 
gold, then platinum and then 
double-platinum, and a live 
version of "Rock and Roll All 
night" went gold in the singles 



department. Kiss could no 
longer be ignored. 

In the spring of 1976, their 
fifth album, "Destroyer", came 
out. This time, Alice Cooper's 
former producer. Bob Ezrin was 
at the control board. The album 
contained many surprises such 
as the hit single "Beth", and 
proved thai Kiss was beyond the 
three chord type of music. 

"Rock and Roll Over" was 
also released in 1976, and their 
litte.st album, "Love Gun", 
earlier this year. Both albums 
reached the Top 10 in the 
country. Riming mobs met them 
when they toured Japan, they 
- shocked and outraged England. 
and are genuine rock heroes to 
the younger teenagers in this 
country.

it to putting down budgies. . . 

e bizarre for laughs 

eventually you get huge, evil smelling Hocks of soiled budgies Hying 
out of people's lavoratories infringing their personal freedom. 
(Copyright Monty Python, 1973) 

The above scene could be from nothing else but Monty Python's 
Flying Circus. As you can tell, this little troop of English comedians 
specialize in a very bizarre form of humor. 

From a lumberjack who wears ladies clothes to a producer who had 
Marilyn Monroe exhumed so she could star in his latest movie, this is 
the insane, crazy and very funny world of Monty Python. 

The sketches move at incredible speed. Starting with a parody on 
seals struggling to survive in the wilderness, they jump to a fake 
Queen Ann struggling for survival as she stalks a wild breakfast with 
a bow and arrow (the breakfast place moves on the ground). 

From there they leap to a fake horse and his fight for survival and 
end up with a fake horse detective show, which involved a lengthy cat- 
chase with the horse driving. ' 

"Monty Python and the Holy Grail" is a movie which fans of the 
troupe will remember for all eternity. Set in midevtl England, the film 
flaunts flawless presentation of costumes and living conditions of the 
times. 

King Arthur and his men, however, have slightly different 
adventures than those we read about in our literature books 
including a round with the Black Knight and a Trojan Rabbit. 

To those who enjoy ludicrous, flaky humor,- Monty Python is a 
welcome relief. * ■

One of the biggest problems 
the JC Players have 
encountered was costuming. 
The costume company they 
ordered outfits from had 
decided that, because of the 
closeness to Halloween, the 
orders could not be filled. 

Costuming now is being done 
by the cast themselves as they 
dig through old-clothing draw- 
ers and visit thrift shops. Many 
costumes come directly from the 
established drama department 
wardrobe. 

Each character had to create 
mannerisms that resembled an 
animal. "I chose a mouse," 
says Castle, "sort of scurrying 
around, nosey.. .you know, a 
rodent!" 

Other animals depicted are a 
proud peacock, a shy puppy 
dog, a penguine, a gazelle, and 
a mole that may clearly be seen 
in the play's characters. 

Sound technicians are Paul 
and Steve Simon, lighting; 
director Debbie Hardter, set 
designers Tom Hansen and Dale

The theatre classes have been 
aiding in ticket sales and

the play.

state and national awards, thus 
bringing the college and its 
students national recognition. 

Student activities and organ- 
izations have profited by 
Beachcomber's remaining con- 
scientious of its obligation to 
give needed publicity. 

The Beachcomber hopes that 
in the future it will be able to

Talent character, attitude difficult qualities to locate 

Coaches find recruiting major headache 



By Jim Goodman 
Sports Editor 

One common misery that all coaches share is the 
unenviable but unavoidable task of recruiting. 

"No doubt about it, recruiting is the toughest part 
of the job," commented basketball coach Joe 
Ceravolo. "The "problem is that we want to get good 
players that also have good character and attitudes. 
It's difficult to find players with all those qualities," 
he added. 

These sentiments are echoed even stronger by 
baseball coach Dusty Rhodes. 

"If they paid coaches for the time spent recruiting 
we would be millionaires by now," Rhodes said 

The reason recruiting plays such a large role in the 
coaches, duties is simple. To remain competetive one 
must get the best players available. This not only 
takes much time, but can often end in heartbreaking 



results as recruits change their minds at the last 
second. 

This past season Ceravolo saw two highly regarded 
local athletes, Ron Taylor of Lake Worth High and 
Benny Goldwire of Suncoast High, go to Dade South 
alter he had apparently persuaded them to come here 

Athletic Director Howard Reynolds feels that most 
ocal athletes go to other colleges to get away from 
home and be on their own. 

"We have more luck recruiting in Broward County 
than we do right here," Reynolds said. 

If there are disadvantages in recruiting local 
athletes then the advantages of recruiting the 
out-of-state athletes make up for it. 

The thought of South Florida, palm trees and 
tanned beauties is a tempting thought to any athlete 
living up North. 

"'We make surd that they all see the beaches while 
they visit us," Reynolds quipped. 



Still, junior colleges are limited in their recruiting. 
Ceravolo said that junior colleges attract three basic- 
types of players: I) talented players who haven't got a 
scholarship to a four-year college, 2) a player who is 
not great, but would help our program, 3) very 
lalcntcd,players who have scholastic deficiencies and 
cannot meet four-year college scholastic standards. 

"I like to have a mixture of the .three," Ceravolo 
said. "For example, I don't think I would want to try 
to handle 12 great players." 

Ceravolo prefers to get local players, but because of 
the difficulty in getting them he lias to occasionally go 
out of stale. 

Right now he has live out-of-state players. 

"We usually go out-of-state to recruit our hit- 
men, Ceravolo said. ** 

Men's tennis coach Hamid Faquir didn't mess 
around with local or out-of-state at hides. He decided 
to go out of the country to strengthen his team.

smashed a 3-0 pitch for a home run. 

They scored another run in the second when 
Bryan Leth singled went to second on a passed 
ball, moved to third on a wild pitch and scored 
when Steven Jacob grounded out. 

It was the fourth inning that put the game out of 
reach when the team scored four times on two hits 
tour walks, and a hit batter making the score 8-0 

An excellent performance was turned in by three 
pitchers, Thomas Treanor, Billy Schmidt and 



Daniel Wcppner. as they combined to shut out 
Boca Raton on seven hits, < 

In the ninth, Seamon walloped his second homer 
of the game, driving home the last two runs 
making the final score 12-0. 

The second game against Boca Raton was over

the second inning on live hits. 

Not satisfied with a 5-0 lead, the team scored 
another five runs in the third inning on four hits, 
two walks and an error. 

Boca Raton gave away the last three runs on 
. three walks, two errors and a hit. ' 

Rhodes explained their overwhelming victories 
saying, "They are just starting their program and 
have a long way to go."

Community College, the teams record stands at

Pacer soccer club is making a 
strong debut and hopes are high 
for some good performance. 

After getting off to a good 
start with a 14-0 win over a 
young John I. Leonard "B" 
team, the Pacers suffered their 
first set-back at the hands of

we played them, (New England) 
seeing that we are a new team 
and they have a couple of years 
playing experience on us," said 
player-coach Gino Jimenez. 

The victory over J.I.Leonard 
was not a tough game, but it did 
give the team its first victory 
and did prove they could score 
frequently if needed. The 
scorers were Esmail Shahrezael 
with five goals, Pedro Zamora 
with three, Gino Jimenez with 
two, Abdullah Turkustani with 
two, Miguel Francis with one 
and Eugene Garcia with one. 

Competition is now part of a 
tournament that should help 
lead into league play later in 
January. All teams are part of 



the Palm Beach Soccer 
Association. The Pacers record 
now stands at 1-1. 

Jimenez thinks that New 
England Oyster House looks like 
the strong club in this 
competition, but feels the 
Pacers should do well. 

Games are usually played 
Sundays at 3 P.M. at the soccer 
field at JC. The next game for 
JCis Oct. 30 with John I. 
Leonard "A" team. The team 
faces Boca on Nov. 6. 

Jimenez siad that the 
practices which are in the 
afternoon usually have a good 
turnout but good equipment is a 
problem. The team hopes to get 
more funds for the club.

Recruiting — — continued 

He's done a good job of it too as his team has players from 
England, Antiqua and Equador. He hopes to bring in a player from 
Venezuela later this year. 

"Even if we got all the top players from this area, we still would not 
be competetive without foreign athletes," Faquir said. 

Faquir spends nine months to one year in recruiting a foreign 
player. Getting the scholarship ready, filing all the immigration 
papers and getting the player's records straight takes upmost of this 
time. 

One coach who doesn't seem to have any problems getting local 
athletes is Dusty Rhodes. 

"We're a community college and I feel that we should help area 
kids," Rhodes commented. 

Rhodes also realizes that there is more baseball talent in this area 
than there is in any other sport, 

"I get between 100-150 letters a year from players around the 
country who would like to come here, but I feel that this area has as 
much potential as any other in the nation." 

The athletic budget does not allow much travelling expenses in - 
recruiting so most of the work is done by contacts. 

In the middle of this is Reynolds who probably has more contacts in 
the sports area than any other person in the college. "Personal 
contacts and phone calls basically make up recruiting procedures," 
Reynolds said. 

Recruiting is a two-way street for the junior college coaches. Not 
only are they recruiting their own atheltes, but are constantly trying 
to get scholarships to four-year colleges for their graduating players. 

Coaching is no doubt a time-consuming job. As Rhodes said, 
"Coaches spend more time working for the colleges than anyone else, 
including the president!"

Windom returnsto portroyThurber 



By Emily Hamer 
Editor 

Character actor William 
Windom is returning to portray 
humorist James Thurber in his 
one-man show "Thurber II" as 
the Fall assembly. 

Windom's "Thurber I" 
delighted an audience of about 
1,000 last February. 

"Thurber I" included parts of 
the author's better-known short 
works and "The Secret Life of 
Walter Mitty" in entirety. After 
the performance Windom ans- 
wered audience questions and 
signed autographs. 

Windom was so well received 
the assembly committee decid- 
ed to ask him to return to do 
"Thurber II." 

Best known for his Emmy 
Award-winning role in the TV 
series "My World and Welcome 
To It", based on Thurber's 
works, Windom also played in 
TV shows "The Farmer's 
Daughter", "Big Fish.Little 
Fish", "They're Tearing Down 
Tim Riley's Bar", "Marcus 
Welby, M.D." and "All in the 



Family". 

Windom's film credits include 
"The Man", "Escape From the 
Planet of the Apes", "Fool's 
Parade", "Brewster McCloud" 
and "To Kill a Mockingbird". 

The actor portrays Thurber in 
colleges across the country 
about 30 times a year. When not 
performing, he lives in Van 
Nuys, Calif, with his wife and 
three daughters. 

Of his interest in Thurber, 
Windom says it began when he 
saw his cartoons in the New 
Yorker. 

" 'The Secret Life of Walter 
Mitty' touched a nerve, fed a 
need and has been a private 
basis for me since I was 
fifteen", comments Windom, 
continuing, "The charm, wit 
and truth of Thurber's work 
unfolded slowly to me for the 
next 30 years." 

He has read about 90 per cent 
of Thurber's works. 

Windom will present 
"Thurber II" Nov. 15 at 10:15 
a.m. in the gym. All classes are 
to be cancelled for the program. ,

Sales and Marketing 
attend state meeting 

Sales and Marketing Club (DEC A) attended an orientation and 
training conference in Orlando. All DECA's Florida chapters 
attended. 

The conference had many seminars which DECA president Dana 
Bathurst described as, "learning experiences designed to prepare us 
for state competition in March." 

Bathurst said the workshop should be a great help for the club's 
upcoming National competition. National competition is to be in 

March. 

Club members visited Seaworld where they viewed attractions and 
were treated to a Kris Kristofferson and Rita Coolidge concert. 

DECA, upon returning, continued production of their 11th annual 
fashion show. 

"We started planning this at the beginning of the year, but 
production started in mid-September," said Bathurst, adding 
excitedly, ' 'It's going to be much better than last year's show. We're 
working well together; it's a great group effort." 
The entire club, 36 people, are involved, dedicating many hours to 
the arrangement of the show. They are planning the music, the 
choreography, the clothes and preparing to model. 

"It's going to be very unique,, it's not the traditional runway 
fashion show," said Bathurst. 

A variety of fashion styles are to be modeled and DECA expects 
them to appeal to every age group. 

Theme for the Thursday, Nov. 10 attraction is "77 Sunset Strip". 
The show starts at 8 p.m. and the general public is invited to attend. 
No admission is charged.

-Science Club's Walter 
Thornsoni defeated Bread arid 
Board's Mike Lanigan by a 
narrow margin in the election 
for Inter-Club Council's (ICC) 
new executive board. 

Elected with Thomson was 
Sharon Coane; vice chairperson, 
Lisa Anderson; treasurer and 
Beatrice Smithell; secretary. 
Smithell ran unopposed. 

Thomson explained why 
they ran and what they hope to 
accomplish, "We ran to keep 
ICC alive. We have a lot of- 
reorganization to do," Also he 
added, "We must show there is 
no apathy in ICC." 

Election of new ICC officers 
came in the wake of the Oct. 14 
resignations of Chairperson Ana 
Govoni, Vice Chairman, Joe 
Durango and secretary Fred St. 
Laurent. 

Former treasurer Chari Coll- 
ins resigned weeks before 
because of class load. 

When the former ICC Board 
resigned they accused Bread 
and Board *(BnB) of trying to 
make a profit on their own and 
'not sharing it with the other 
clubs. ICC said that BnB did not 
stick to a set price for an Oct. 16 
ICC picnic which they were 
supposed to cater. 

Butit has been indicated that 
BnB is a catering association 
and does have a right to make a 
profit. In fact, that is one of the 
reasons for BnB. 

We've been told that BnB is a 
profit-minded club that prepares 
students dor their careers. 

When BnB officers were 
interviewed they said that the 
accusations ICC made against 
them were completely outland- 
ish. BnB claimed, that ICC was 
under a lot of pressure because 
of low ticket sales and 
scheduling the outing on the 
same day as WIRK picnic, in 
almost the same location. 



Further investigation by the 
Beachcomber confirmed that 
$2.75 was the set price agreed 
by ICCfor the Oct. 16 ICC 
picnic. It was never challenged 
by Govoni at the meeting at 
which the price was set. 

BnB spokesman Tom 0'- 
Rourke, said, "I think ICC was 
trying to cover up their own 
profit. They were aware that 
BnB had to make a profit. 

Yet in the ICC constitution 
there is no stipulation saying 
whether ICC can or cannot make 
a profit. 

O'Rourke went on to say that, 



"Any profit BnB makes gets 
invested in the (Food) depart- 
ment for years to come." 

O'Rourke stated, "We never 
asked for a blanket purchase 
order. We wanted to buy the 
food out of own BnB cash or on 
credit with a purveyor... we 
didn't want any money." 

But ICC claims that they were 
not the ones that asked for the 
blanket purchase order — it was 
BnB. 

O'Rourke also explained that 

when ICC agreed on the price, 

ICC had plenty of time to drop

Even if part-timers have 
acquired a wealth of experien- 
ces, one concern is their ability 
to convey that experience.

to fill out evaluation forms.

Instructors ask, "what is a 



college? Is it buildings or is it 
instructors? A good college has 
good instru ctors , activated , 
believing in what they're doing. 
What happens when they must 
sacrifice financially? How can 
they be motivated?" 

Many say that the reason 
students don't complain is they 
don't know what they are 
missing, and won't find out until 
they venture out into the more 
competitive upper divisions. 

Still it is necessary to mention 
that in certain technical and 
non-credit courses directed to 
the community as well as 
students, part-timers are essen- 
tial. 

In these courses, instructional 
qualifications may differ in that

certification requirements and 
regulations, academic ability is 
not necessarily preferred over 
practical experience.

Wage battle edges on 



Negotiation should imply an 
action that results in a 
reasonable and acceptable 
compromise. It is a meaningless 
word to us. 

We could learn a valuable 
lesson from Palm Beach County 
School Board and the Classroom 
Teacher's Association (CTA). 
They have just concluded 
successful negotiations in a 
controversy similar to the one 
going on here. 

The School Board and the 
CTA had reached an impasse. 
Both sides had rejected a special 
master's recommendation and 
the future promised further 
bitterness and controversy. 

Instead, at their last meeting, 
the Board proposed a new 
compromise settlement, going 
as far as possible to reduce their 
differences. The CTA wisely 
understood the situation and the 
attitude and, accepted their 
offer. Although they did not 
gain everything they had 
demanded, they did gain more 
than the Board had previously 
offered. 

We, too, have gone that 
route. Our special master's', 
recommendations were chewed 
up and spit out. The tangible 
results were a deepening rift 
between administration and 
union and what appears to be 
retaliation against union lead- 
ers and the more outspoken 
union members. We note the 
loss of instructors who took an 
active role in the union 
bargaining. One way or another, 
they have gone from the campus 
and our classrooms. 

In a bargaining session, an 
administrative spokesman act- 
ually stated that, although 
administration made and adop- 
ted their policies, they, 



themselves, did not have to 
follow them. According to their 
own admission, rules are made 
for others, but administration 
can ignore any they see fit to 
disregard. 

Nor is administration bound 
to follow recommendations by a 
special master. They rejected 
the first set of recommenda- 
tions. Why go through the 
motions again? 

The cost for such a hearing 
was estimated by the board 
attorney to be $40,000 plus his 
own fees. Dr. Manor insists we 
must go through with another 
one. 

All this appears to be 
delaying tactics, which plays 
directly into the hands of 
administration. It bleeds the 
teachers both financially and 
spiritually. The union provides 
its own financing. Administra- 
tion draws on tax funds. The 
attitude seems to be that there 
are unlimited funds to draw 
from, and for a protracted 
battle, one they have no 
intention of ending. 

Legal processes are costly. 
With much of the college funds 
budgeted and committed, re- 
ductions can only come from the 
academic areas. We have 
already suffered many program 
cutbacks and loss of release 
time for advisers. 

Dr. Manor will leave a tragic 
legacy for his successor and the 
faculty. A change in leadership 
will entail problems enough 
without these additional ones. It 
may take years for these 
problems to disappear. 

A petition circulated by two 
instructors to replace UF with a 
new bargaining group seems to 
be a ploy to delay a settlement. 



By 4ine. year 1^80, 
minimum wage "Will 
be. around 3 and 
a hc»l-r 
dollars. 




The first petition was declared 
void because of improper 
format. A revised petition is 
now being circulated. This will 
drive further the wedge in the 
ranks of the teachers. Even a 
new group representation would 
not hasten peace on campus. A 
new group would have to start 
all over again, from the 
beginning, and there is no 
reason to believe that they 
would succeed. 

Morale has sunk so low it now 
affects students. Distrust and 
suspicion lurks in the back- 
ground of campus life. Students 
find they can no longer ignore 
the situation. They shun campus 
contacts, so that few of our 
activities draw student support. 
With no school spirit there is no 



enthusiasum or involvement. 

Where do we go from here? 

Mature, educated people, in 
the business of counseling and 
training young people for 
responsibilities of life, provide a 
poor example. How do they 
expect students to learn from 
them when all we get is the 
result of a two-year struggle 
between two unyielding, angry 
opponents? This is not the way 
sensible people should act. 
There should be a voice of 
reason, and someone who will 
listen to that voice, 

We have a desperate need for 
an impartial board to sit down 
and do some serious bargaining 
and compromise. There should 
be no winner. Both should yield. 
The hour grows late. We can not 



wait for your settlement. What 
we have lost while attending JC 
can not be given back. For us 
there is no fresh start. We have 
been shortchanged permanently 
so far as these two years are 
concerned. 

What the Board can do is to 
make sure the oncoming 
students in the next year have a 
chance to study in a quiet, 
peaceful atmosphere and get 
the most out of their time spent 
here. They can make sure that 
every opportunity is available to 
learn in a proper learning 
situation. 

In fighting and union-man- 
agement stalemates we can 
learn about in the commercial 
world. We do not need them at 
college. 



CPR training is proven lifesaver 



We are known as a 
non-involved generation. There 
are numerous instances where 
tragedies have resulted from 
such attitudes. 

The Kitty Genovese case in 
New York some years ago, 
horrified the nation, when 37 
witnesses to a murder refused to 
get involved. Other episodes 
include accidents and sudden 
illnesses with witnesses show- 



ing callous disregard for the life 
of the hapless victims. , 

Roy Robinson, our instructor 
for physics and physical science, 
became ill and collapsed in a 
corridor last week. 

Patricia Hilliard, biology 
teacher, immediately came to 
his help with mouth-to-mouth 
resuscitation. Several students 
joined in the heroic measures to 

keep Robinson alive and

hospital ambulance arrived. 

Cardiac-pulmonary-resusci - 
tation (CPR) training enabled 
these good Samaritans to 
provide effective emergency 
first aid in a critical situation 
where every minute counted. 

CPR courses are given by the 
American Heart Association and 
also at JC. With this . type of 
training, each of us has the 
potential of saving a life, 
perhaps for a loved one. 
Without it, we could- do more 
damage than good if we ttidd 
the two-way method of first aid. ' ; 

A drowning or shock victim 
also can be helped with this 
method, as well as one suffering 
a cardiac arrest or heart attack. 
This course can be the most 
worthwhile time ever spent if it 
saves even one life. 

It is gratifying to know 
competent and caring instruct- 
ors and students are in our 
midst. Robinson is a classic 
example of the great need for 
many to learn the CPR method. 

He is alive and in fair 
condition as we go to press 
because prompt first aid kept 
him breathing -and alive those 
first few critical moments. 

If someone collapsed in your 
presence, or stopped breathing, 
would you know what to do? 

If not, then it is time to check 
the CPR course and enroll, the 
sooner the better. 



letter I 

Bread and Board clarifies 



Upon reading the article in the Beachcomber concerning 
ICC and Bread and Board (BnB), we (BnB) feel the truth 
should be brought out. We are not writing this to blame 
anyone, but to clarify the issue at hand once and for all. 

First, ICC learned of BnB's projected profit margin on Oct. 
10, not the 12th or 14th as stated to the Beachcomber. This 
gave them plenty of time to choose another caterer if they 
weren't pleased with our price. We did not force our services 
upon them. ,_ { .,;..., 

; As for the.statement concerning whose function it was, ICC 
isnot aprofit-making club and was never intended to be. Their 
function is to distribute funds equally among the school's 
clubs. BnB, as one of these clubs, is a profit-motivated club, 
just as all the other clubs are. 

The recommendations made by the Executive Board that 
BnB be "fined, suspended, and charged with conspiracy," as 
quoted by the Executive Board of ICC, is totally outlandish! 
Why should BnB be charged for accepting a job to cater a 
picnic and quoting a price that may be accepted or declined? 
ICC did not have to use our price nor our services, but they 
did! 

Also, BnB never quoted a price of $1.25 per plate as stated 
in the Beachcomber. Our projected cost per person was $2.75 
per plate. 

The blanket purchase order choice was not done to cover 
anything, but to allow for price fluctuations from our various 
purveyors. 

BnB suffered because of the picnic failure, for which it had 
contributed a great deal of effort to make it a success. It was 
unfair to single out one club to blame.

According to the Dept. of 
Health, Education & Welfare 
and the Smithsonian Institute, 
the average height of the adult 
American man is 5 feet 9 inches. 
Women averaged 5 feet VA 
iliChes, Variations did occur 
between age groups. The 18-24 
groups averaged 2'/j inches 
taller. Academic research ap- 
pears to substantiate height 
bias. 

Jack Feldman, a pyschologist 
and association management 
professor at University of 
Florida, said, "height bias is 
unintentional discrimination on 
the part of many employers." 
Size bias is often a ghost, an 
intangible illusion that haunts 
every man who is less than 
average height. 

Some successfully circumvent 
the problem by going into their 
own business. Others silently 
straggle with a sense of 
inadequacy for the remainder of 
thdr lives, either with humor or 
with bitterness. 

In 1%8, 100 graduates of the 

University of Pittsburgh Grad- 
ate School of Business 



reported their starting salaries 

to Walter Rittenaur & Leland P. 

Deck, of that university. Their 

report: 

Under six feet S701 per month 
Six feet 719 per month 

Six feet 1 inch 723 per month 
Six feet 2 inches 788 per month 
Eastern Michigan Univer- 
sity's marketing department 
showed visiting corporate re- 
cruiters two equally qualified 
candidates for a sales job. One 
was 6 feet 1 inch and the other 5 
feet 5 inches. 72 per cent chose 
the taller applicant. 

Supervisors for blue collar 
jobs believe short people can not 
perform as well, physically. 

White collar workers turn to 
elevator shoes or other 
inches-adding lift devices to 
create an illusion of height and 
authority. 

Too often a short person does 
not get the breaks. Short still 
remains negative — short 
sighted, shortchanged, short- 
handed. 

Short still implies "less 
than." Not only does nature 
shortchange in height, but 
fellowmen continue to sell them 
short in their appraisal of 
capabilities and talents. 

We have yet to learn that we 
can "look up to" the short 
people just as easily as we can 
"look down on" them. It is 
simply a matter of relativity.

and some hot dancing. 6 "»»"»

is small but adequate. Business hours are from 11:30 a.m. to midnight. 

Abbey Road Beef and Booze, located at 10800 No. Military Trail, is by far one of 

the best places m Palm Beach County. The turn of the century decor is attractive *

The Chances R II at 2209 Belvedere Road is one of the last country- western 
places in the area. Offered every Sunday is a jam session and barbeque with all

a varied age group, this is the place. 

Citadel Discotheque at 5900 Broadway in Riviera Beach is the latest in the disco 
group. The music is disco at its best and drinks are moderately prices. The 
atmosphere is modern and very attractive. The age group is in the early 20's.

has fine entertainment and fair drinks at moderate prices. The dance floor is good 
and the age group ranges from 25 to 40. . 

Crazy Horse Tavern at 1649 Forum Place is great if you like excellent food, good

Crazy Jim's Saloon advertises warm beer and lousy food, but someone should get 
them for false advertising. The pool and game room is well-provisioned and the 
people are friendly. Located at 3613 So. Military Trail, Crazy Jim's is open from 10

The Duchess Lounge in Lantana offers some of the best entertainment around. 
This lounge has offered chances to more budding groups than any other club. The 
drinks are good and the atmosphere congenial. The dance floor is small but well 
positioned with the stage. The age group is the 30 to 40 range. As more people 
discover the Duchess Lounge, the age group will get younger. 

The Duke, across the street from the Duchess, is indeed its big brother. Offering 
the same atmosphere and good prices with great entertainment seems to be the 
specialty of these two places. A must for people who love a good time.

Insane protestor discovered

I had the opportunity to go to Gainesville and the 
University of Florida for a few days last week and 
upon my return I commented to a friend, who had 
gone there some years back, that the weirdos of 
yesteryear seem to have vanished. 

"Yes," she said, "after Vietnam ended and Nixon 
left, the protestors had nothing to protest, so they all 
closed up shop and went home. ' '

"Ring Round The Moon" — 
a story of love and money 



By Dave Taylor 
Associate Editor-News 

"Ring Round the Moon", directed by Sunny 
Meyer and performed by the JC Drama Dept., is 
a bit trifling at times but yet often is a funny 
account of an affluent family who so well 
illustrates the cliche "money isn't everything, it 
can not buy love." 

The scene is set in the pre-depression era of 
1920. 

The set, consisting of a swing seat, trellisses, 
stairs, assortment of flowers and plants and 
sheer nylon curtains, is also constructed to 
realistically show wealth. 

The portrayal of college students as 
aristocrats through the use of make-up is 
exceptionally well done. 

Each performer is fine-tuned into the soul of 
each character in which he portrays. 

Gary Lazer uses dual roles of Hugo and 



Frederic, .shows, his ability to act as he 
portrays two completely different personalities. 

Hugo and Frederic area turns but only on the 
outside. Hugo is wicked and manipulates people 
to his own ends. Frederic is portrayed as the 
opposite , one who is shy of love. 

The actors did a superb job and the scene was 
very effective, however the script was perhaps 
overdone. 

Over-done in the respect, the moral seemed to 
drag on. 

Meyer did, however, add music and dancing to 
the script, which perhaps added a little bit more 
humor and action as it began to drag on. 

The script, for the era, will not appeal to the 
average student of today's society, 

All in all, seeing "Ring Round the Moon" was 
a worthwhile experience, not only for its 
outstanding quality of performance but for sheer 
enjoyment. 



New college athletes 
are better 



By Robin Plitt 
Venture Columnist 

College athletic programs 
could function better if they 
offered more diverse activities 
that everyone could participate 
in. Here are a few suggestions. 

INTERCLASS ROLLER 
DERBY: This contest lasts ten 
minutes. The object is to cover 
as much distance and knock 
over as many of your opponents 
as possible. Special equipment 
includes several heavy books 
and a sharp pen which leaks. 

ELEVATOR STUFFING: This 
one is self-explanatory. The 
object is to put as many players 
into an elevator as can fit, 
according to the laws of physics. 
If the elevator does not go up 



three floors all contestants are 
disqualified. 

WASTEBASKET BASKET- 
BALL: There is a 50 minute time 
limit for this contest. The class 
is divided into two equal teams. 
The object is to shoot "baskets" 
using crumpled literature notes 
into the garbage container. 
Teams should not allow the 
lecture to interfere with this 
sport. Highest score wins. 
CHAIN-SMOKERS DELIGHT: 
This sport takes place during a 
short break in the class 
schedule. The object is to smoke 
as many cigarettes in a given 
time as possible. Coughing fits 
and fainting spells constitute 
automatic disqualification for 
contestants. 



HIDE AND SEEK: This is a 
new adaptation of the old 
favorite with a literary twist. 
The object is to spend five 
minutes in the library and hide 
(misplace) as many books as 
possible. The seeking is left to 
the more ambitious types. 

THE CRAMMING GAME: 

This is already popular. The 
object is to wait until the day of 
a test and do three weeks worth

Delta Omicron, Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) chapter 
at JC, is tied for first place with two other Florida 
chapters as one of the best chapters in the state . 

The announcement that Delta Omicron currently 
ranks first out of 34 chapters in Florida was made 
at the PTK State Convention in St. Petersburg . 

Marilyn Robson, one of 28 PTK members who 
attended the convention said, "I'm glad we 
received the award. We have a good chapter with a 
lot of members, but there is still a lot more work we 
can do." 

Terry Sell, PTK National president, traveled 
from his home in Auburn, Washington to welcome 
Florida PTK members to the convention. 

Dr. John Bauldree, science professor at St. 
Petersburg JC and featured guest speaker at the 
convention, referred to himself as the "prophet of 
doom" when he predicted a third World War in 
1980, a severe depression in the spring of 1979 and 
a critical change.occuring over the next 10 years, 



in Florida's climate similar to that of 
Minneapolis's. 

"He was just too much and he was serious-let 
me tell you !"• responded Andrea Stebor, PTK 
vice-president, to Bauldree's speech. 

Also featured at the convention was a "Gong 
Show". Delta Omicron participated in the show 
with a "Kazoo Act". 

"We didn't score very highly, but at least we 
participated," stated Dan Hendrix, PTK advisor. 

Workshops and seminars provided, according to 
Robson, a "shot of enthusiasm" to all PTK 
chapters around the state. 

Robson added, "The convention unified all 
members around the state... brought everyone 
together and made everyone realize that there 
really are other people out there working. ' ' 

Various events included a Iuau, dinner at the 
Kapok Tree in St. Petersburg, and a formal 
farewell dance held the last night of the 
convention.

Activities for the '77-'78 
season are still in the planning 
stages as Student Government 
and the Senate go into their 
sixth week. 

Meeting every Wednesday 
since they were sworn in 
September 28, the Senate has 
had proposed ideas, such as 
having the student body name 
the streets that are on campus 
and put up road signs 
arranging coffeehouse concerts 
on the patio (as had been done 
before), a mini-concert featur- 
ing a local band, and obtaining 
recreational games for the 
Student Activity Center (SAC) 

Concerning the recreational 
games, the Senate passed that a 
rounded figure of S700 from SG 
budget be set aside for purchase 
of the equipment. Items to be 
purchased are one air hockey 
table at S142.50, one football 
table at S393.00 (coin operated), 

«i°nn Ck8ammon sets at 
wi.00, two chess sets at S17 50 

S^™ eused table tennis set « 

A recreational area was tried 
before .but failed. Its demise is 
attributed to the fact that the 
equipment was not purchased 
but leased from a vending 
company who wanted a hieh 
overhead. The attendants who 



were watching the machines 
could not be paid because there 
was not enough money after the 
overhead was paid to the 
contractor. 

Mike Lanigan, head of the 
recreational committee says that 
if the gameroom is not a 
success, the equipment can 
always be sold rather than 
returning it to a leasing 
company. That way, money will 
not be lost, but-returned to the 
budget. 

October 27-30, several mem- 
bers of the Senate and two 
Executive Board members went 
to their state convention in 
Miami. They are; president, 
Sharon Christenbury; vice- 
president, Ronald Pugh; senat- 
ors Ana Bacas, Pat Bagley, 
Katie Cooke, Maurice Gaffney, 
Mike Gurklis, Victor Martinez, 
Deatrice Patterson, Greg Ring- 
dahl, Thomas Romano, and 
Jerry Wildman. Workshops 
were held on topics such as 
How Student Governments 
Succeed or Fail", "Parliamen- 
tary Procedures", "Legislative 
Awareness", and "Minorities 
in Student Government". The 
senators agreed that the high - 
Point of the convention was 
sharing ideas with other SG 
representatives there. 
Basketball coach Joe Ceravolo 



presented the senate with the 
idea of having a homecoming. 

The senate agreed to back the 
team and cheerleaders in 
getting the idea started and 
circulated. Still needing decis- 
ion is whether the senate will 
undertake the project-entirely or 
if they will co-sponsor the 
homecoming with the athletic 
department. 

November 15, SG president, 
Sharon Christenbury will go 
before the Board of Trustees in 
an attempt to get grant-in-aids 
for academic scholarships.

Biscay ne clowns Pacers in exhibition game 



Cagers prepare for opener against Manatee 



By Jim Swann 
Staff Writer 

The Pacer cagers are working 
hard for their season opener 
Nov. 18 at home against 
Manatee. Last year the Pacers 
lost the opener to Manatee and 
are not going to take this one 
lightly. 

Coach Joe Ceravolo is 
narrowing down the list of talent 
to fill a starting rotation. He 
would like to have eight good 
starters for the game. 

The Pacers operate an offense 
consisting of two guards, two 



pivot men or centers and one 
wing man. 

Ceravolo said he needs three 
strong guards. It looks like these 
are to be Mike Bennett, Dirk 
Jamison and Shack Leonard. 
These three players are returning 
from last year and should give the 
Pacers strength at this spot. 

At the wing position there is 
William Buchanan and Sam 
Wethersbee who are also 
returners from last year's squad 
and are proven ball players. 

At the pivot position a question 
mark arises. Don Hewston and 



Bob Weber are new at this spot 
and will be playing against more 
experienced opponents. Derrick 
Paul, who obtained some 
experience from last year's 
squad, gives this position some 
needed experience. 

Gerald Nelson, a transfer from 
Sanford University, is also to be 
competing for this spot when he 
becomes eligible: in the second 
half of the season. 

The guard and wing positions 
look strong with good depth and 
experience. The pivot men, 
though not boasting a lot of 



experience, should be tough but 
the problem arises that last year's 
squad had its two highest scorers 
at this position. That probably 
won't be the case this year. 

In a scrimmage game against 
Biscayne College on Nov. 2 the 
Pacers showed they have 
potential. They lost 69-68 to a 
squad that plays higher class 
college ball. 

Mike Bennett led the scoring 
with 11 points . He was followed 
by Dirk Jamison and Shack 
Leonard with nine points apiece. 

This shows that the guard spot 



is strong and should score a lot 
during the season. 

Gerald Nelson was one of the 
leading rebounders and the 
Pacers can greet his eligibility 
with optimism. 

Don Hewston also did a fine job 
of rebounding and controlling the 
boards. 

The Pacers go into the season 
with some good depth, good 
experience and a few question 
marks. Hopes are high for the 
year but the question marks 
remain unanswered until Nov. 18. 




Pacers end season on a losing note 



By Paul Jenkins 
Staff Writer 

The baseball team ended the 
exhibition season by losing to 
Biscayne College and splitting a 
doubleheader with Broward 
Central. , 

Six errors against Biscayne 
College allowed eight unearned 
runs to score and proved to be 
the Pacers' downfall as they 
went on to lose 11-4. 

Their troubles started in the 
first inning when the Bobcats 
scored five runs on two hits, 
three walks and two errors. The 
five runs proved to be enough 
for the victory but Biscayne was 
not finished scoring ' ' 

While the Pacers could 
manage "only one run in the third ' 
inning on one hit, an error and a 
walk, the Bobcats scored two in 
the second, one in the third and 
three in the fifth on a combined 
total of three hits, four walks 
and four errors. 

JC was able to shut out 
Biscayne for the rest of the 
game and mounted a mild 
comeback scoring a run in the 
seventh when Keith Parenteau 
singled, stole second and scored 



on a single by Steven Jacob. 

Pacers completed the scoring 
in the eighth inning when they 
scored two runs on walks by 
Scott Benedict and Richard 
Seamon and a two-run single by 
Alexander Delano. 

JC could manage only a split 
at home against Broward. They 
lost the first game 5-4 but came 
back to win the second 9-7. 

Bryan Leth scored the first 
run of the game in the second 
inning. After doubling, he 
moved to third on a sacrifice fly 
and scored on a groundout. 

However, their lead was 
short-lived when the Seahorses 
pdcfred in' four runs in the third 
inning on five hits and a walk. 
After that' they never fell behind 
again scoring what proved to be 
the winning run in the fifth 
inning despite a rally by the 
Pacers in the sixth inning. 

In the second game, after 
falling behind 2-0 in the first two 
and a half innings, the Pacers 
took command, scoring three 
times in the third, three times in 
the fourth, twice in the fifth and 
once in the sixth on ten hits, two 
errors and a walk.

White— women's golf asset 



By Sherman Donnelly 
Staff Writer 

We are lucky to have Donna White, a Ladies 
ProfessionalGolf Association (LPGA) touring pro, 
as the women's golf coach here. 

White started coaching last January after former 
women's golf coach Joe Sanculius resigned and 
has been working hard with the girls helping them 
face the competitive collegiate tournaments 
around the state. 

She feels the most important thing is the team 
getting tournament experience and confidence 
since the bigger schools sometimes play through 
the summer. 

"The caliber of girl we get here is a good golfer, 
but they aren't able to compete in national 
tournaments during the summer like the girls at 
the University of Florida and University of Tulsa, 
th e stronger golf colleges . ' ' 

The team has an advantage, however, since the 
returning women golfers from last year have that 
much more experience. Their over-all stroke 
average has gone down significantly. 

For White amateur golf was a lot of fun and a 
chance to make new friends. But the tour is hard as 
a sport, as a job, and as an income. She often has 
to spend seven to nine hours a day practicing. 

She qualified for her LPGA tour card in July and 
played her first tournament in August at the Patty 



Berg Classic in Minneapolis. Two weeks ago in 
Texas she finished second at the Houston 
Exchange Club Classic, bringing her total earnings 
to $5,069 after just five weeks on the tour. 

Asked if she felt Laura Baugh and Jan 
Stephenson, two of the more popular girls on the 
tour with national television coverage have helped 
the game: 

"They have good agents and I think it's a great 
thing for the women's tour. I personally didn't care 
to join before because of the type of image women 
athletes had." 

But things are changing in women's golf and 
White reflects on what direction it may be heading 
for. 

"I think in the last few years there's been .a 
complete turnaround in that, like tennis, a lot of 
new things have happened within the LPGA to 
help itself, and an outsider." 

White lives with her husband in Palm Beach 
County and plans to tour for three or four more 
years. She is currently ranked "about 71st" and 
looks forward to beginning the tour again in 
February. 

If she can convey her golfing talent to the 
coaching ranks and inspire her players to compete 
with as much dedication, then the women's golf 
team should have no trouble fulfilling a successful 
season.

'Comber meets with committee 

Lichtblau concerned 

By Dave Taylor 
Associate Editor-News 

In a rather routine business type Board of Trustees (BOT) meeting, member Dr. Philip Lichtblau 
expressed a bit of disappointment toward the previous 20 minute meetings. 

Lichtblau stated that there are things the Board could be learning from the various, departments if 
monthly presentations were made as done a few years ago. 

Much of the routine meetings are from a Consent Agenda. 

A Consent Agenda is a group of topics which President Dr. Harold C. Manor recommends and simply 
asks if there is a discussion. Because there generally isn't, the Board ordinarily passes the whole agenda. 

Ironically the Beachcomber had attempted to get on the agenda for this past Board meeting to give a 
presentation. 

This presentation was to familiarize the Board and those in the audience with the various functions of 
the Beachcomber for better understanding. 

However, it was later found that the 'Comber is required to meet with the Board Committee. 

This committee consists of Frances Hand, Susan Anstead, and Dr. Robert Smith. 

The 'Comber stated its financial status and proposed the idea of 'Comber editors receive grant-in-aids 
as they put in many more hours than any other organization on campus. 

Beachcomber also made several proposals to clear up their financial situation. 

Although the committee did not reach any final decision 'Comber was asked to attend another 
committee meeting before the next BOT meeting, to be held Dec. 21, whereby a decision will be 
announced.

New PTK chapter is born 
members endorse charter 

By Kathy Cavanaugh 
StaffWriter 

Twenty-three Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) members signed a charter which installed Alpha Gamma Sigma, 
the new PTK chapter. 

Rosanne Scragg, former vice-president of Delta Omicron, now president of Alpha Gamma Sigma, was 
Master of Ceremonies. ' 

Invocation was given at the beginning of the program by Dr. Sidney Davies, professor of Religion and 
Philosphy. 

Honored guests included Roselee Kelley, PTK advisor for the state of Florida; Dr. Harold Manor, 
Robert D'Angio, North campus coordinator; Daniel Hendrix, Delta Omicron advisor and Francis Barton, 
Alpha Gamma Sigma advisor. 

All honored guests gave remarks. • " 

As an honorary member of PTK, Roselee Kelley reminded PTK members that they were lucky to be 
attending a junior college where they have the opportunity of being genuine PTK members. 

Kelley said she did not have the unique opportunity of attending a junior college. Instead, she attended 
a four-year university where she did not have the opportunity to join PTK. 

D'Angio, however, has been a Phi Theta Kappan for 30 years. Directing this statement to charter 
members, D'Angio said in jest, "I would like to call myself your brother, but I'm afraid that because of 
my age I cannot." 

Manor, Barton and Hendrix all said they are proud of the new chapter and wish it success. 

Hendrix added, "I'm expecting great things from Alpha Gamma Sigma." 

Entertainment by JC's music department featured Ope Bellas and Roger Keiper, vocalists; and Sharon 
McTyre, pianist, who performed songs including, "You Light Up My Life" and "What I Did For Love". 

Officers from Alpha Gamma Sigma's parent chapter. Delta Omicron, ushered at the installation and 
served cake and punch to the guests. 

The installation was held November 6.

State policy now mandates 
that the college is to allow 
admission to high school 
students who have not passed 
minimum competency tests. 

Students failing the adult 
performance level exams do not 
receive diplomas but certificates 
of attendance, which acknow- 
ledge the students' having 
acquired the 20 credits needed 
to complete high school by 
earning passing grades. 

"There will be no difference 
in the make-up of the student 
body," said President-elect 
Edward M. Eissey. "99 per cent 
of them (students failing the 
APL tests) will not go to 
college." 

Dr. Paul W. Graham, 
vice-president of Academic 
Affairs, said, "Last year, or 
years past, any student 
completing the 20 units received 
a high school diploma, which 



means we will be taking the 
same students we have, in the 
past." 

Administrators have indica- 
ted thai the change in policy 
would not affect the academic 
standards of the college. But 
President Harold C, Manor 
said, "We're not quite sure 
what effect this will have." 

Many instructors feel the 
admission of students without 
diplomas can be art added 
burden in classes, which may 
lower the quality of a JC 
education.. 

Last year the County School 
Board initiated performance 
tests to measure the reading, 
writing and mathematic abilities 
of students leaving high school. 
Since this county move, the 
state has instituted a similar test 
for all Florida's secondary 
schools. 

Eighteen per cent of the 11th 
graders who took the test last 
year failed. 



A version of the Boston 
Marathon will take place on 
Nov. 22 at 12:30 p.m. outside 
the JC gym. This is the starting 
time for'the 1977 Turkey Trot. 
Prizes of turkeys, chickens and 
hens, are to be awarded. 

There are four divisions for the 
run. These are men's faculty 
and women's faculty, men and 
women students. A 30-minute 
time limit is to be used and the 




runners with the most miles at 
the end of that time are the 
winners. If a runner starts 
another mile, he is allowed to 
finish it regardless of the time 
limit ending. If more than one 
runner has started an extra mile 
then the first one to finish wins. 

With this set up, the first 
three places will come from 
most miles total or if in case of 
all three having the same 



number of miles, then the 
succession of finishers will 
decide the places. 

Some good runners are 
expected to participate and 
there are expectations for some 
five-mile totalers. There should 
be a good sized field of runners 
with some good competition. 
For those less talented runners 
the name Turkey Trot may be 
quite appropriate, but at- any 
rate it should be a fun workout.

Associate Editor-News 

Sales and Marketing Club (DECA) presented its 1 1th annual fashion show in the SAC. 

The show entitled "77 Sunset Strip" opened with models Celina Klee and Tim Cambell participating in 
"The Strip" — simulated that is, was well received by the crowd. 

Other scenes included "Meet Me In The Park" — park scene with Dara Bathurst walking a show dog^ 

"Hollywood and Vine" — shopping scene with Sally Perry also walking a show dog, "Groman's 
Chinese Cheatu" — dinner scene and "Sunset Boulevard" — a premier scene. 

The fashion show made possible by Andra Rogerson Classics, Burdine's, Fountain's, Jeans Etc., 
Lerner's,. Stuart's, 16th Avenue, Stagg Limited and Foxmoor. 

"A couple hundred students, parents and children showedup for the event, "stated DECA president, 

DaraBathurst. ' ": ,'' '■'" 

DECA will be setting up a booth on Career Day. )f 

"We will be holding a bake sale Wednesday in front of the Registrar's and Beachcomber's office, 

added Bathurst. _ 

SC attend state park 

Members of the Science Club braved 38 degree temperatures on a 
three-day camping trip to O'Leno State Park near Gainesville the 
weekend of Oct. 14. 

David Kitchens swam and towed approximately 20 inner tubes 
down the Itcheetucknee River, a tributary of the Sante Fe River. A 
surprisingly warm water temperature of about 71 degrees greeted 
the 55 members of the club as they surveyed the many fish in the 
clear water. 

The Itcheetucknee river is fed by Hole, a giant spring and 
re-emerges in the Swanee river. 

Sunday afternoon the students visited the Florida State Museum 
Anthropological section. This area is open to the public once a year. 
At the museum, the club members viewed a Columbian religous 
ceremony called a pole dance. Five men tied to a pole, swing off of it 
in a two-hour ritual. This ceremony is supposed to remove evil 
spirits. 

According to legend, the natives were about to become priests.

Even though the demise of 
the youth fare card in 1973 
signaled a reduction in student 
travel nationwide it has not 
necessarily meant that the 
student who wants to travel 
abroad has to pay regular high 
rates says JC student Alfred 
Vazquez. 

Vazquez is one of the few 
students who has an Interna- 
tional Student Identity Card 
(ISIC). 

The travel card, set up by the 
National Student Travel Bur- 
eaux of Countries all over the 
world, facilitates inexpensive 
travel accommodations and 



other arrangements for travel- 
ing students. 

"No travel agency knows of 
this. This is why I want to 
introduce it here at the 
college," said Vazquez. 

Vazquez claims that the 
beauty of the pass is that there 
is no maximum age limit. 

"Ail you have to show is proof 
that you are enrolled full time in 
an institution of higher 
education. This proof can be 
shown by either photostatic 
copy of your matricualation or a 
letter from the registrar. But 
Vazquez warned that enrollment 
in summer terms is not 
sufficient proof of matriculation. 

Sponsor of the card, Council 



On International Educational 
Exchange, is oriented in 
university information and 
travel information dealing with 
all travels, flights, trains, hotel 
reservations and restaurants. 

The permit yields discounts 
only, on air and train rates in 
Europe, Africa and Asia and not 
in the Americas. But in the U.S. 
the pass is good for discounts at 
museums, historic sites and 
concert halls. . 

Vazquez, who has traveled 
extensively, says that the $2.50 
card must be renewed annually.

New York to Paris flight with a 

savings of S150 explained that

Capital punishment 

—Victims neglected 



Murders are committed in private while executions are public. A 
murder victim is given no mercy, has no appeal or defense and no 
stay of execution. He dies alone. 

A murderer has all of these to an almost unlimited extent, paid for 
by the taxpayers. Many voices are raised to plead for mercy for a 
killer. Who is there to cry out for justice for the victim? 

This, then, is one result of our judicial system. Every mitigating 
or aggravating circumstance is weighed before the sentence is 
passed on the perpetrator. There must be no sympathy for the 
victim to insure a fair trial. Even the execution is planned with care 
to nlake it as easy as possible. What a. pity that much concern is not 
shown by the criminal toward his prey. 

The process of capital punishment is controlled by an entire group 
of persons. The case is carefully studied and many opinions are 
ruled on before execution takes place. This is a far cry from 
"bloodthirsty people bent on revenge" that civil liberty groups 
angrily describe. 

Florida has 91 persons under death sentences. Our last execution 
occurred in 1964. After much soul-searching and sober 
deliberation, Attny. Gen. Robert Shevin said, "This is unpleasant 
business and a very difficult decision to make. I believe the death 
penalty will save innocent lives, but it won't be a deterrent at all, if 
we don ' t carry it out . " 

House Minority leader Bill James (R-Delray Beach) agrees it can 
be a deterrent and it might help to ' 'take us back to reason and 
sanity in the United States." He added, "I believe in an orderly 
society. Sometimes in order to have the kind of discipline you need, 
you have to have an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth." 

In law enforcement, the consensus is that capital punishment 
does not greatly deter crimes of passion. First degree, premeditated 
murder definitely is influenced by the consequence. 

John A. Spinkelink is slated, as we go to press, for execution. At 
the time he committed themurderfor which he is scheduled to. die, 
he was a career criminal and an escaped prisoner. One can hardly' 
call him an innocent victim of a vengeful society. Yet he is extended 
great sympathy by certain groups. 

We do not see the gruesome, brutal aspect of a murder. Nor do 
we know the havoc and trauma that follow. We don't hear much 
about the bereaved family nor the predicament of the victim. We 
should add, an innocent and involuntary victim. 

This is the dark side of murder. The horror must be veiled. The 
agony silenced. To speak of it would deny the accused a fair trial. 
One little misstep by the prosecution and the defense can get the 
case dismissed. Not that the accused is less guilty. Only that when 
society makes a technical error, the criminal goes free. 

Opponents to capital punishment argue, "Nothing will bring back 
the dead so what good will it do?" Or, "It's really not his fault — we 
all are to blame." 

What happened to our sense of pergonal responsibility for our 
own behavior? When did we stop believing that we are the captains 
of our ships, and masters of our destinies? We are responsible for 
doing good to our brother, but nothing in the books say we must 
carry his guilt. 

The penal system was devised to deter by example, punish wrong 
doers and prevent them from doing further harm. It was never 
intended to be a rehabilitation. A change of heart comes only from 
within, not through a law. 

The majority of crimes are done by repeaters, the career 
criminals. With petty starts, they work their way up to the serious 
crimes. Our prisons are bulging with inmates who are far from 
repentant. Their only regret is they got caught. 

Until such time as our judiciary system devises a way for a 
criminal to compensate directly to his victim or family, there must 
be retribution. A life sentence is not a sentence for life. Some crimes 
are far too bestial to forgive and forget. So somewhere, we must

'Comber clarifies previous point 



In our previous Beachcomber edition was the 
final section of an in-depth editorial series 
concerning faculty-administrative problems. Our 
information was based on reliable sources 
whenever we could not ascertain facts personally. 

We had stated that the board attorney estimated 
the cost for a special master's hearing to be 
$40,000 plus his own fees. We should have said 
that $40,000 or more has been paid to Jesse Hogg, 
special Coral Gables attorney, hired by the board 
to deal with the union. This estimate is a 
conservative one. 

According to figures released by Dr. G. Tony 
Tate, vice president of business affairs, the 
20-month fee up to Jan. 20, 1977 for Hogg came to 
$37,778.98. There have been nine subsequent 
months of his continued service after that figure 
was released. (Note the above cited amount covers 
about 2/3 of attorney services timewise.) Total for 
the extra nine months should go past the $40,000. 

There is no way we can give an estimate of the 
additional costs to administration for time, 
expenses for preparation, clerical services, office 
expenses, travel and conferences, long distance 
calls and postage fees for this 29-months period. 

The estimated cost for the special master 



hearing, as we have previously reported in other 
editions, was, in fact, $4,000 plus attorney fees. 

Elisabeth Erling, assistant dean of academic 
affairs, responded to our editorial' by saying "no 
spokesman has made a statement saying 
administration is not bound by policies. " 

At a bargaining session last year there was a 
discussion between the board attorney (Hogg) and 
Dr.. Earl Hicks (chief union negotiator) concerning 
mowing grass during class hours. 

Hogg at that time made the statement in 
question. Hicks, in response, tore out the sheet 
referring to it and threw it away. 

We assume Hogg as representative and in the 
pay of administration to speak for them would 
rightfully be considered a spokesman for them at a 
bargaining session. 

Perhaps administration is trying to interpret the 
word in a different light than we commonly would 
use it. This has previously been a problem in some 
of our news research. 

As we said,' our sources are considered reliable. 
We have no reason to think that those who were 
present at the meeting in question have not told us 
facts as they actually happened. 



Standards could plummet 

Palm Beach County Schools are feeders to JC. As such, we are 
concerned about the grim results of the Adult Performance Level 
(APL) or minimum competency test in the area junior high schools 
last March. 

About 57 per cent of the county's minority students failed the 
test, contrasting with the 8.3 per cent failure rate for white 
students. This is a graphic illustration of our failure to educate 
minorities within our schools. 

Colleges will have to increase remedial courses to help students 
who score low on high school levels. Or it could become imperative 
to drastically lower the standards for college. 

Another possibility is that we~ could develop into an 
European-type educational system, with what we now know as 
community colleges evolving into an intermediate educational step 
between the grade schools and the upper level universities, with 
most of the concentration focused on the catch-up type of learning. . 

No matter how it turns out, JC and other community colleges 
stand the risk of downgrading. 

How far will all of this go? No one knows. 

It could eventually revolutionize and even destroy our college 
system as we know it. Community colleges are in special peril of 
destruction because they must admit students without special 
standards or qualifications. 

With a JC policy to admit all students regardless of achievement 
levels comes a myriad of compounding future problems. 
Predictively, there will be an accelerated rate of class drop-outs, 
with lost monies for students. Also, a disruption of scheduling 
necessary classroom sizes. As usual, our instructors will be caught 
in the middle of a dilemma. 

Why should junior colleges enter the remedial teaching area? 
High school diplomas are rapidly losing their status. Will college 
diplomas be next? 

These tests can become criteria for upgrading high school 
studies. When public schools finally attempt to cope with low level 
achievement, it is wrong for junior colleges to undermine their 
effort.

Windom a success 



George Carlin sells out at 
auditorium; spouts foibles 



By Don Vaiighan 
Venture Editor 

George Curlin is a member of the new breed of 
comedians. His humor is irrelevant, satirical and 
often "obscene." His fans speak of the truth in his 
humor, detractors scream of the shock laughs. No 
one is apathetic. 

George Carlin was in concert at the West Palm 
Beach Auditorium November 10. before a sell-out 
crowd. Accnustical problems marred the otherwise 
successful performance, and members of the 
audience periodically yelled for the amplifiers to be 
turned up, 

His 90 minute repertoire consisted of material 
.from his new album, "On the Road", as well as 
pieces from his previous records and some "classic 
Carlin". such as "The Seven Words You Can 
Never Say on Television." The audience greeted 
each new selection enthusiastically and gave the 
comedian a standing ovation at the end of the 
performance. 

Carlin's popularity, it seems, stems from his 
ability to humorously kick around' the foibles of 
man and the world. 

"When you make a sandwich," he says, "do 
you reach pa.st the first few slices to get the good 
pieces in the middle? It's a matter of survival." 

During one segment, Carlin talked about cats 
ind dogs. "Dogs look like they have all the misery 
>f the world in their eyes, but cats look like their 
esting lenses." 

Carlin made a name for himself with his 
concepts on words. He was once thrown out of a 
nightclub for his use of obscenities during his act." 
Probably his most famous segment concern the 
"Deadly Seven." 

"There are 30,000 words in the English 
language," he begins, "and there are seven you 



can never sav on television. They must be pretty 
baaad!" 

The method behind Carlin's madness is similar 
to the principals behind the late Lenny Bruce. The 
"Deadly Seven" are merely words. Say them 
enough, make them humorous and they lose their 
offense. 

Many people feel that Carlin's earlier works, his 
"clean" material, is funnier than his current 
monologues. His newscasts are considered classic 
comedy. Such characters as Biff Barf, Al Sleet and 
Congolia Breckenridge are well known to the 
Carlin following. 

Radio station WINO,(... wonderful WINC, in 
Western Walla Walla!!), and his game shows; like 
"Truth or Penalty", "Queenie For a Day" and 
"Let's Make A Deal" are some of the funniest 
concepts to hit vinyl. 

Carlin began his somewhat unusual escapades 
as a DJ in Louisiana. While running records, he 
was able to perfect his collection of voice's and 
characters. 

He teamed with comedian Jack Burns for al 
while, then split to hit the road alone. After initial' 
difficulties with club owners and patrons over his 
brand of humor, Carlin's success skyrocketed with 
an unprecedented 12 minutes on the "Ed Sullivan 
Show." 

Carlin's popularity is at an all-time high, 
stemming from his attraction to the youth audience 
which loves his points of view, voices, characters 
and outlook. 

He could tone himself down and play post 
dinnerclubs, but that wouldn't be George Carlin. . 
He is most at home before a throng of screaming 
young adults in a smoke-filled auditorium. That's 
George Carlin.

William Windom drove into 
town and, following direction 
very carefully, got lost. He 
didn't know he was lost, so he 
checked into the Holiday 
House in Lake Worth instead 
of the Holiday Inn in Palm 
Beach. And he was content. 
"Oh, it's a nice, comfortable, 
quiet place," he assured me. 

Bill Windom is a quiet, 
comfortable, strong man; an 
actor who works for a living 
doing the work he likes. And 
so, on November 15, JC and 
the community were privil- 
eged to see and hear Mr. 
Windom at work, "playing" 
Thurber. I prefer to think of 
Mr. Windom playing with 
Thurber. It is easy to become 
"Thurberized" — anyone who 



knows how to communicate 
with lemmings is a guy I 
respect. 

The gym was unadorned 
except for a makeshift 
platform set with a chair, a 
table and a stool. The lights 
went out, the huge audience 
hushed as a single spotlight 
picked up our "Thurber" as 
he non-chalantly made his 
appearance. 

His costume was resplen- 
dent! — gray shabby slacks 
with a red stain on the seat, an 
old shirt topped by a navy wool 
sweater vest. He wore a green 
visor, just for the hell of it, I 
think. And on his feet were 
mushy moccasins. 

The best touch of all were 
the bright red socks — to 
match the stain on his pants, 
perhaps? He was a vision of 



exquisite comfort. 

The fact that Bill Windom is 
hooked on Thurber is no 
secret, he has been regaling 
audiences with those stories 
for years. This viewer 
thoroughly enjoyed an en- 
chanting, entertaining hour 
with Windora's Thurber, or is 
it Thurber's Windom? And I 
left knowing: n #• 

That we are not lost as long 
as we have ourselves; 

that we cannot die as long as 
we can bully another guy; 

that wives who know 
nothing about the workings of 
machinery can fortell the 
machines demise; 

that William Windom never 
wears ties; 

that he has gorgeous, 
all-knowing ej^s; . m 

and that lemmings are wise. 




WILLIAM WINDOM portrayed humorist .lames Thurber Tuesday before an enthusiastic audience. 
Many of ilu> selections brought on' spontaneous applause, especially "The Secret Life of Walter 
Mitty."

Our reporter in the Bar, Laurie Mann, 
after many nights of exhaustive research, 
has supplied us with the second segment of 
our Bar and Lounge Review. We sincerely 
hope that you enjoyed the first part and put 
it to good use, and now that, you are 
sufficiently dried out, this is a way to spend 
next weekend. 

The Ki Ki Lounge at 905 South Congress 
Ave. caters to the youth of Palm Beach 
County. Good entertainment is one of the Ki 
Ki's trademarks and so, unfortunately, is 
overcrowding. After having finally founds 
seat, I found their drinks average, the people 
loud and my body bruised from being 
crushed in the crowd. Not one of my better 
evenings. 

Kopper Pub at 147 North Congress Ave. in 
the Boynton Shopping Plaza is great! Phil 
James and Larry Gill provide the 
entertainment and they alone are worth the 
trip to Boynton. The drinks-were good and at 
a modest price. The dance floor was small 
but adequate. Phil James has a mellow voice 
that makes listening to him seem a pure 
pleasure. 

Mr. G's, 1000 North Congress, West Palm 
Beach, has a nice atmosphere. A good dance 
spot with disco music, generally live 
entertainment and moderately priced drinks. 

O'Hara's, 130 North County Road, Palm 
Beach, has some of the best entertainment 
in town. The drinks were good, but 
expensive and the atmosphere was very 
friendly. A truly fun place. 

Ricky D's Lounge, 610 Belvedere Road, 
West Palm Beach, was smoke-filled, 
overcrowded and generally disappointing. 
Drinks were average both in taste and price. 
■Entertainment was live and enjoyable. If you 
are willing to put up with the poor ventilation 
and crowds, you can have a good time at 
Ricky D's. 

Shenanigan's at 1901 Palm Beach Lakes 
Blvd., (next door to the Sheraton Inn) was 
very enjoyable. The drinks were good and 
not expensive. The atmosphere was pleasant 
and the people friendly. Debbie, Tony, and 
Backburner is definitely a group worth 
seeing, and their 50's show is excellent, a 
plus rating for Shenanigan's. 

Capt. Alex is located at 1900 Broadway in 
Riviera Beach. C.A.'s has always been one 
of my personal favorite hangouts. Drinks are 
reasonable and the dance floor is adequate. 
If any of you locals remember the group 
West Coast Connection, you will be pleased 
to know two of their former members have 
formed a new group called Chrystal and can 
be heard at Capt. Alex's Wednesday 
through Sunday, an excellent boogie spot. 



The Green House, 525 South Flagler, 
West Palm Beach serves huge drinks and 
has a friendly atmosphere. Drinks are a little 
more expensive, but their size aod good 
taste are worth it. No dance floor but almost 
always a folk singer or duo are on hand. 
Open from 1:30 p.m. to 2 a.m., The 
Greenhouse is a definite must for anyone. 

Infinity Disco at 6910 South Dixie is by far 
one of the better disco's in Palm Beach 
County. An excellent dance floor, with good 
entertainment. Live music is provided every 
Sunday night and occasionally on'Ttiurscfky, 
Friday and Saturdays also. Starting 
November 21st* every Monday night will 
feature a fashion show and Tuesday nights 
there are the wet T shirt contests with the 
one hundred dollar first prize. Also, a Foxy 
Lady Contest with a $50 dollar cash first 
prize for the winners as well as free 
champagne for all entrants. Starting soon, a 
Gong Show with different cash grizes every 
week. Winners get a chance to audition for 
the real Goiig Show. Open from 9 p.m. to 5 
a.m. I definitely recommend makingihis one 
of your regular stops. 

Spencer Wood's Tiffany Restaurant and 
Lounge at 301 Broadway, Ri«era j s 
expensive, loaded with class asd fun! 
Spencer Wood plays keyboard «th his 
group Rhythm, and he is an excellent host. 
The music, atmosphere and drinfcwer^-ajj 
excellent. Expensive, yes, but worth every 
pennv. Drinks start at $2.50 and on up.. 

The Water Shed at 823 BelvedereRoad i s 
enjoyable if again you enjoy crowds, the Ii Ve 
entertainment was good, the drinks iverag e 
and the people cliqueish. A goad stap- 0ver 
place when all you want is to be ignored. 

.Now that I have sufficiently dried out, I 
would like to express my thanks to all the 
bars and lounges I reviewed. * * 

Also, a special thanks to oy fell ovv

Late night studying is the best 



Investigation into sleep and 
study habits have shown 
startling- differences between 
"day" and' "night" persons. 
Whether you choose to burn the 
midnight oil or get up at the 
crack of dawn to cram for a test 
will significantly affect your 
grade. 

Staying up late to study, 
Glamour magazine reports, can 
result in far better grades than 
to set the alarm for early dawn 
to cram. 

Research shows that sleep 
before studying measurably 
disrupts the memory, unless 
there is considerable awakespan 
between them. The. shorter the 
period of awake-time preceding 
study, the poorer the retention 
of study material. 

In addition, the briefer the 
actual sleep period is prior to 
the study, the more disorgan- 
ized the memory becomes. Four 
hours or less shows far more 
drastic changes than a six-hour 
sleep. 

Somatotrophin, a hormone 
produced naturally during 
human sleep, is believed to play 
a key role in the disruption 
pattern. 

Laboratory workers have 




THROUGH A 
PERISCOPE 



GUNDA CALDWELL 



injected this hormone into test 
mice. Results showed severely 
affected memories in the 
animals tested. These studies 
further strengthen the theory 
that this hormone is the culprit 
in disruption of memory 
process. 

People who wrestle with a 
problem and decide to sleep on 
it also suffer a similar memory- 



lapse. In this case they tend to 
forget much of the information 
that created the indecision 
previously, and can make a 
quick decision. They remember 
fewer alternatives, thus make 
faster decisions. 

Quite the contrary situation is 
desired for a student facing a 
test. Background information 
and evidence retention is vital to 
cope adequately with the 
upcoming examination. 

Next time you need to study 
for a test, study before going to 
bed rather than putting it off 
until the next morning. Your 
reward may be much better 
grades.

Yes origin unique 

By Perry Jayasekera 
Staff Writer 

In the field of classically inspired rock music, only two groups have 
pioneered and perfected the genre: Emerson, Lake & Palmer and 
Yes. 

The two groups perform different styles of this music and while 
ELP deals more with traditional classical themes and adaptations, 
Yes songs are rooted in romanticism and contain quasi-classical 
orchestrations, in terms of vocal harmonies and complex 
compositions. 

The Yes story began in Birmingham, England at La Chasse, a folk 
club. While working there as a busboy, Jon Anderson met Chris 
Squire and found that they had a mutual fondness for Simon and 
Garfunkle. 




They both liked the simple two-part harmonies and the light, airy 
textures of the folk duo's music, but they wanted to fit these qualities 
into a contemporary rock band. 

Squire and Anderson recruited former bandmates Bill Bruford, 
(drums) Peter Banks (guitar) and Tony Kaye (keyboards) and began a 
lengthy residency at London's famed Marquee Club. 

Through constant gigging, they had merited enough of a following 
to be placed at the bottom of the bill, opening for Cream at their 
farewell concert in the Royal Hall in London. 

In mid-1969, they released "Yes" and in early 1970 they released 
"A Time and a Word." Although there were no hits or outstanding 
cuts on either album, the two discs clearly defined and laid the 
groundwork for their unique style of music. 

Meanwhile, they were gaining the reputation of being a "hot" live 
band as they toured Europe heavily. 

In early 1971, the group lost Peter Banks, but acquired someone 
much more talented, a brilliant guitarist named Steve Howe. 

Six months later, "The Yes Album" was released. This album 
contained the classic tracks "Starship Trooper", "Yours Is No 
Disgrace" and "All Good People." The groups sound was 
dramatically altered, as the new songs revealed the dominant guitar 
work of Howe. It was now time to hit the road, this time in the United 
States. 

The next few years would see comings and goings, but it was 
during these years that Yes made its mark oh the music scene.; 

In mid-1971, a famous session keyboardist left a rock group called 
The Strawbs to take over Tony Kaye's spot in Yes. His name: Rick 
Wakeman. 

When the news got out to the press, critics and fans alike 
anticipated the upcoming album from this highly-touted line-up and 
the band did not disappoint anyone. The album "Fragile" became a 
fast seller and contained their only hit single, "Roundabout". 

This L.P. and their first headlining U.S. tour established Yes as an 
national and international recording and touring act. Nine months 
later, "Closer to The Edge'*, made it to the record racks, and 
contained three lengthy, incredibly performed compositions: "Closer 
to the Edge,""And You and I" and "Siberian Khatru". Now a 
fuliyfledged top-level rock act, Yes maintained their unusually high 
standards in composing, recording, and touring. 

These high standards were quite evident on their triple album set, 
"Yes Songs," basically n greatest hits collection from the past three 
albums performed live. This marked the entrance of session drummer 
Alan White replacing Bill Bruford, two or three days before their 
fourth American tour. Needless to say, White came through 
admirably, as evidenced by his excellent drumming on the Yessongs 
album. - 

"Tales From Topographic Oceans" came out in late 1974. A very 
disappointing album, the critics lashed out at Yes for producing such 
substandard material. 

It was because of "Tales" and its musical direction that caused 
Wakeman to leave the group. It contained four overly long and overly 
boring compositions that lacked any inner energy or drive. Wakeman 
continued his successful solo career with his two albums. "Journey 
To The Center of The Earth" and "The Six Wives of Henry VIII," 
both received critical acclaim and gold album status. 

To recover from such a jolt, Yes brought in Patrick Moraz. A Swiss 
Keyboardist, Moraz composed some 30 or 40 film scores, and many 
felt he was equal to or better than Wakeman. So to prove this point, 
they released "Relayer" in late 1975. Miles ahead of "Tales," the 
album helped to regain respectibility with the critics. They made two 
huge U.S. tours during 1976 and later Moraz left to pursue his own 
solo career. 

Wakeman surprised everyone by rejoining Yes in early 1977. Many 
people felt he made the move for the money and some felt they did it 
as a mutual career boost to revive declining popularity. 

I tend to agree because their new album, "Going For The One," 
does not sound like the Yes of olden days, but more like another art 
rock group, Genesis. The new songs lack that distinctive Yes 
preciseness and have taken on a more sing-song feel. Don't get me 
wrong, Yes rates high in my book and "Going" is a fine album. I just 
hope Yes utilize their impeccable musicianship and composing 
.talents to achieve better results on their next album .

By Patrick Heffeman 
Staff Writer 

An ample carry-over from 
1976-77 JC South student 
activity fees is to be added into a 
contingency fund at the South 
Center. 

At a Nov. 10 meeting of the 
Student Advisory Board (SAB), 
board treasurer Elizabeth Ad- 
ams read a budget report in 
which she cited a $4,505.51 
surplus. 

Of the $8,182.00 collected in 
activity fees during the '76-77 
year $5,753.50 were expendi- 
tures. With the '75'-76 fund 
balance of $2,077.01 and the 



'76-77 fund balance of $2,428.50 
this accounts for the abounding 
$4,505.51. 

In looking into this year's 
budget ('77-78) about $10,000 is 
expected from fees and another 
liberal fund of $4,000 could be 
expected. 

Adams stated that, "36% of 
our fees go to athletics at the 
main campus." 

Counselor Dr. Harris McGirl, 
advisor to the board, .slated, 
"We need an input into the 
budget in order to organize for 
next year."

The American-Scandinavian Foundation has named Cindy 
Haapanen and Lynell Matson as recipients of the scholarships 
donated to JC by this organization. 

"1 wasn't really expecting it, I was surprised," Matson 
answered when asked her reaction to the news. A nursing major, 
she is now working as a nurse's aid. After graduation from JC she 
plans to attend the University of Florida. 

Student Government Treasurer Haapanen said, "1 was shocked, 
I really was, because I have never received a scholarship before." 
Haapanen said she had applied for several scholarships before 
leaving high school, but was awarded none. 

She intends to continue her education at Florida State 
University as a Fashion Merchandising major.

Homecoming plans 



By Dave Taylor 
Associate Editor-News 

* * Homecoming is coming to 
JC. 

We are trying to get unity in 
the school,"announced instruc- 
tor and basketball coach, Joe 
Ceravolo. 

* ' We are looking for home- 
coming queen candidates," said 
Ceravolo. 

Candidates must be sponsor- 
ed by a department or 
organization, however, if indi- 
viduals wish to enter the contest 
one can with 25 student 
sponsors. 

Homecoming queen is to be 
selected by the number of 
season basketball tickets sold by 
them , or their sponsors. The 
candidates for queen are to be 



announced at half time. 

Homecoming is to be financed 
by the basketball team. 
However Ceravolo did say, he 
asked Student Government for 
aid, they declined the project as 
sponsors, but did say they 
would help. 

Ceravolo said he would invite 
an alumni group and perhaps 
past members of the basketball 
team. 

"If we are going to involve 
the community this will be an 
excellent opportunity," said 
Ceravolo. 

"I visualize the day when the 
whole parking lot will be set up 
with booths and displays," he 
added. 

The basketball game is to take 
place at 7:30 p.m. in gym. Pacers 
will be playing Indian River. 



(Singers to perform] 

The Pacesetters are to perform a free afternoon concert Tues., Nov. 
22 at 1:00 p.m. in the SAC Lounge. 

Student Government is sponsoring the concert, the second of two 
shows presenting performing groups from the Music Department. 

' * Many students go through two years at JC without seeing any of 
our performers," said Robin Plitt, SG secretary of productions. "We 
wanted to give them that chance with a free concert." 

Xhe Pacesetters are a college singing group with a wide range of 
styles including show music and popular music. Patricia Johnson is 
faculty sponsor for the group, which presents a full schedule of area 
concerts. 

* *This isn't your ordinary singing group," said Plitt. "Their shows 
are moving, exciting and emotional. 

Miss Johnson always rounds up a talented group of people and 
they produce a fine show. I'm proud to have the chance to work with 
them." 

. SG sponsored a Nov. 10 band concert, directed by Prvweller. The 
show featured a variety of music composed for concert band. 



Travel 



from pg. 2 



jnost of the flights are charters, 

''Just because they are 
c f* arter flights doesn't mean 
they are bad. Charter flights are 
t j, e same as regular flights 
(almost in the same kind of 
planes - DC 8's) only with a 
c hart« flight you have people 
with the same goal, said 
Vazquez. 

''In some museums and 
historical sites tne discounts are 
from 10 to 50 per cent," stated 
Vazquez. 

As to why the travel agencies 
jon't know this, claims 
y a zq«ez, is that they don't get 
cC ,rnmissions from this. 

Js. spokesman for Embassy

s£t id, "K exists as a group and 
they don't pay us any 
cC? mmission. They send out their

"We'd have to investigate this 
to see what the Civil 
Aeronautics Board has to say 
about this. For all we know it 
could be some type of flim-flam 
operation." 

But Vazquez said, "How can 
it be a flim-flam operation when 
TWA and Pam Am are into it 
and it's world wide and I've 
"used it myself. 1 think the travel

Fellenstein takes medalist honors 



Men golfers win Pacer Invitational 



By Sherman Donnelly 
Staff Writer 

The men's golf team won first place in 
the Palm Beach Junior College 
Invitational at the Par 71 Villa Del Ray 
golf course, Nov. 3 and 4. 

Out of the 25-man field, the Pacer's 
"A" team finished first with a strong 
294-292-586-score for 36 holes. The "B" 
team finished fifth, for a 36-hole total of 
399-322-641. 

Other scores were Florida International 
University 304-293-597, Miami Dade- 



North 308-298-606 and Indian River 
Community College with 303-306-609. 

Coach Bob Prentiss, who is resigning 
at the end of the semester, was pleased 
with the final standings, "The high winds 
on the second day made playing 
conditions hard, but I was pleased with 
the whole team." 

In individual scoring, Rich Fellenstein 
was the first place medalist with a 
74-67-141. Second was Bill Stewart of 
Miami Dade-North (145) and Gene 
Jizzarelli of Florida International 



University was third with 147. 

Other scorers for the Pacers were Ken 
Green and Doug Sinclair who shared 
fourth place with identical scores of 
74-74-148. Pacer Kim Swan took fifth, 
place along with Mike Cooper of Florida 
International University, both shooting 
72-77-149. 

In tournaments so far this year, the 
record improved with every meet. 
Beginning in August the team finished 
eighth, seventh, fourth, second and first 
places in succession. 



Coach Prentiss, 18 years a P.G.A. pro, 
turned the team around and utilized the 
player's skills as a team, and as 
individuals. "Our progress was super," 
added Prentiss and since it is not just 
coaching a group of accomplished 
players, the idea is to coordinate with the 
team and plan ahead. 

The men's golf team finished very 
strong this semester under Prentiss. Next 
semester should be just as hopeful with a 
better and more optimistic team 
returning in January.

Windom serves good game 



By Emily Hamer 

An audience of several 
hundred students and commun- 
ity members gave actor William 



Windom 's Tuesday performan- 
ce of his one-man show, 
"Thurber", a standing ovation. 
His tennis game the night 



Pool is fost moving 
mental control qame 



Any sport, when played 
properly with beauty and 
thought is an art. 

Every sports fan seeing a 
competitor dazzle in the 
spotlight of an instant knows or 
can feel the individual compon- 
ents of the act. 

Baseball's double plays 
illustrate many of these 
components. In each one can be 
seen forethought, dexterity, 
speed and confidence. 

These same qualities are 
standouts in the less physical, 
but just as exacting, game of 
billiards. 

Better known as pool, 
billiards is just as exciting when 
played properly as any other 
sport. 

A game that requires both 
mental and physical gymnastics 
it is as intriguing to view as it is 
to participate. 

Casual observers cannot 
mistake the professional player 
from the amateur. 

From the moment the pro 



steps into the pool room the 
spectator is aware of his ability 
and the tension surrounding 
him. 

The mental war continues 
throughout the contest without 
relaxation and each stroke of the 
cue ball emphasizes the 
presence of pressure. 

Each participant chooses a 
strategy of play; which ball to 
shoot first, second and precision 
to the last. 

Every shot is important and 
preys on the mind . 

The miss can be a loss. Yet, 
while cognizant of this, it can't 
be allowed to destroy the 
needed cool and relaxation. 
Players having the physical 
techniques down pat are only as 
good as their mental discipline. 

Beginners shouldn't feel 
upset when an expert gives 
them not one shot, because like 
other games the good player is a 
joy to watch. 

Players such as Minnesota

"The last time Bill Windom 
was here, he was disappointed 
that he was unable to work in a 
few seisof tennis," said Dean of 
Women, Elizabeth Davey, 
chairman of ihe assembly 
committee and former tennis 
coach . 

"This time he asked ahead of 
time if I'd play tennis with him, 
so 1 arranged for some mixed 
doubles with local playwright, 
Leslie Heidt and New York 
Times writer Frank Lodge," 
continued Davey. 

Spectators at the game, 
including assembly committee 
member Emily Hamer, Beach- 
comber editor Charles Loveday, 
news editor Dave Taylor and 
sports editor Jim Goodman, 
agree Windom plays tennis as 
well as. he plays Thurbcr. 

Sportsmen and spectators 
went to a local fast-food 
restaurant after the game. 

Windom had flown in from his 
California home earlier in the 
evening. 

Heidt commented that the 
actor has a fantastic serve, "is 
very sure of himself, and is an 
exceptionally nice man." 

"He serves the ball so you 
can't even see it coming," she 
added. "We were missing balls 
like crazy under the lights." 

Windom and Davey won the 
match with a score of 2-6, 6-2, 
6-2. 



Pacer soccer club

By Jim Goodman 
Sports Editor 

Showing an improved offen- 
se, the soccer club was able to 
split two matches in the Palm 
Beach County Soccer League 
(PBCSL) Tournament. 

Abdullah Turkustani led the

added a goal for the Pacers. 

On Nov. 13 the team lost a 
heartbreaker to the Juventus 
Soccer Club, 4-3. It was a tough 
loss for the Pacers because only 
ten people competed for the 
team and it takes eleven players 
to fill out a soccer team. 



The lack of players prompted 
Jiminez to say, "We've got 
good players, but not good 
teamwork. We need everyone to 
show tip for the practices and 
the games." 

Tom Grix led the Pacers with 
two goals. Turkustani added the 
third. 

The team's record in the 
tournament now stand at 2-4, 
with one game remaining 
against Imex Soccer Club. 

The tournament is a warm-up 
for the PBCSL's regular season 
which begins in January. 
Jiminez hopes to schedule some 
exhibition matches during the 
semester break.

Final baseball cuts 
made by Rhodes 

By Paul Jenkins 
Staff Writer 

Coach Dustv Rhodes feels that this year's baseball team could be 
good, in fact he says, "If everything works out we could have the best 
team we've ever had here." 

That sounds promising except for the "If everything works out". 
What couldpossibly go wrong? For one thing there is the professional 
baseball draft coming up. Rhodes thinks that he could lose two or 
three players. 

"Ted Adkins and Scott Benedict should be drafted," Rhodes said, 
' ' and the scouts are looking at a couple of other players. ' ' 

The final cuts have been made and it was hard for Rhodes to make 
some of them. "I had to cut a couple who were good enough to play 
any other year," he said. 

This year's roster consists of 24 players. 

Ted Adkins, Bob Garris, Leland Wright, Dan Weppner, Brian 
Refosco, Joe Siers, John Shrewsberry and Dwight Tidwell make up 
the pitching staff. 

Catchers are Scott Benedict, Richard Seamon and Jack Crooks. 

The outfielders consist of Gerry Continelli, John Gagnon, Ed 
Walker and Al Delano. 

Infieldersfor the Pacers are Roy Alvarez, Bill Castelli, Bryan Zeth, 
Joe Chaney, Tom Howser, Craig Gero, Vic Biazis, Jeff Smith and 
Keith Parenteau.

Fats and Al Greenleaf are few

Billiards is a fascinating

Legislative group 
meets on campus 



By Patrick Heffernani 
Staff Writer 

Inter-Club Council (ICC) with 
its many problems and slow 
growth rate may . cease to 
function as a financial distribu- 
ting body next year if final 
approval is given by JC 
President Manor. 

At a recent Student Activity 
Fee Committee (SAFC) meeting 
it was decided in a 6-5 vote that 
ICC along with campus radio 
station WPBC and Sales & 
Marketing Club would be 



reincorporated under Student 
Government for the 1978-79 
year. 

ICC will still .continue to 
function dispensing money the 
remainder of this year including 
Spring I. 

ICC Chairman Walter Thom- 
son said, "1 asked SAFC 
Chairman Dean Paul Glynn for a 
revote and he said no because it 
was past business. ICC could 
exist next year only if it's given' 
anew meaning. 

In this case it would-be more 



of a money raising organization, 
such as raising funds via car 
washes or bake sales. 

The proposal for the three 
organizations to come under SG 
control was brought up by I & R 
representative Paul Simon. He 
and several others felt that they 
should come under SG control. 

The clubs that are to be 
affected by this final recom- 
mendation are: Phi Theta Kappa, 
Science Club, Chi Sig, Early

Palm Beach County Legisla- 
tlve delegation, under the 
direction of Chairman Repre- 
sentative Ed Healey, met with 
tiie faculty to discuss upcoming 
problems that lie in junior 
college systems. 

Elizabeth Allred, biology 
instructor, said teachers have 
only received 5.2 percent pay 
raises since 1974 while 
administrators have received 22 
percent raises. . 

The delegation took no action 
£»s requested by Allred. 

■'I think really it's a matter for 
IPERC (the Public Employees 
Relations Commission) to in- 
vestigate, not " the legislative 
delegation," said Sen. Harry 
Johnston; Chairman of the 
Senate Committee. 

The stickiest issue was 
•whether the delegation would 
■support local-interest bills with 
a. simple ' majority of all 
j-n embers or if a majority of 
t j-iose in each house should still 
t>e required. 

Following the meeting guest 
speaker, Sen. Don Childers, told 
educators that the functional 
literacy tes't program is to 
j-educe the number of illiterates 
completing high school to six or 
jjtJven per cent in the next three 
years. 

Childers, who introduced the 
pjan in 1976, expressed his 
c t>ncern to" those graduates 
t* i ven a high school diploma and 
-jllow them to believe that this 
v v«u!d entitle them to a job even 
(•jraough they could neither read 
t> r do simple arithmetic. 

■ "I venture to say many of 



them are on welfare today," 
stated the Senator. "I'm not 
pointing a finger at anyone, we 
are all to blame." 

Other delegates were Rep. 
Don Hazehon who hopes to back 
such bills that will benefit 
teachers and students, however, 
did acknowledge that he was not 
in favor of free tuition, as it is in 
California; Rep. John J. 
Considine III, Rep. Tom Lewis, 
Rep. Bill James, Rep. Reid 
Moore, Rep. Don Taylor, Sen. 
Phil Lewis and Sen. Harry A. 
Johnston II. 

Also in attendance at the 
luncheon were K-12 principals, 
guidance counselors, the board 
of trustees, school board, as 
well as county office officials. 




REP. HAZLETON expresses dismay with the decision 
procedures.

Display of musicians'autographs in library 



The autographs of various 
musical greats, for the most part 
forgotten except by music 
enthusiasts, were 'recently 
displayed by the JC library. 

Mainly consisting of signa- 
tures of opera greats like 
Beverly Sills, Leontyne Price, 
Rise Stevens and others, the 
display also included auto- 
graphs of Conductor Leonard 
Bernstein, composer Aaron 
Copeland, and Broadcaster 
Milton Cross. 

The names are written on a 
wide variety of mediums, 
including index cards, photo- 
graphs, inside of book covers, 
signed letters, publicity notices, 
show programs and even on the 
cover of Time magazine . 

Many of the signatures are 



dated, showing many of them to 
be over twenty years old, while 
others were as recent as last 
year. Two of the autographs 
were older, both hardly legible. 
One was dated 1906, another 
dated November 28,1932. 

Included in the collection was 
a 1961 hand-written note from 
pianist Van Cliburn which says 
in part: 

"To all of the young people at 
hnerlachen, I want to say thank- 
you not only for your great 
kindness, to me, but for the 
abundance of musical joy and 
satisfaction you have given me 
through your enthusiasm for 
music as well as artistic 
endeavours..." 

Another recent display in the 
library consisted of hand-crafted 



miniatures from the collection of 
Arthur Carroll, father of library 
staff member Judy Neumann. 
The figures, made in Taiwan, 
were arranged into, a nativity 
.scene by Carroll as a retirement 
hobby. 

Currently on display is a 
collection of rharine shells 
representative of what can be 



found in Florida, donated by the 
Palm Beach County shell club, 
and an array of fossilized bones 
and sharks teeth. 

The library displays, which 
are on the second floor of the 
library, are open to the public 
Monday through Thursday from 
7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. and on 
Fridays from 7:30 a.m. until 4 
p.m.

Christmas nears 



December marks the end of a 
semester, the end of a year and, 
most of all, it mean Christmas. 
End of a semester: This includes 
final exams with midnight cram 
sessions and a gnawing concern 
about final grades. Whether we" 
opted for just getting by or for 
all-out dedication to excellence, 
the time for reckoning ap- 
proaches. Past performances 
are about to become integral 
parts of our permanent records. 
We remind those planning to 
go on to upper level universities 
that an increasing number of 
colleges are using' the quota 
system for outside students. 
This requires B+ or better 
grade averages. 

End of a year: This year is 
nearly over. We had hoped that 
an agreement between the 
faculty union and administration 
would occur. Instead, the rift 
has deepened and we shall 
probably carry this sad situation 
over into the new year. ' 

The Beachcomber is in a 
precarious position and we are 
not yet sure of the outcome for 
the student's paper. 



All in all, looking back over 
the last 12 months it looks as 
though we have gone through 
an exercise of "treading water 
to keep from drowning." There 
is no significant progress, 
although in a few areas we have 
lost ground. 

And then there's Christmas! 
For an all-too-short season there 
will be "peace on earth, good 
will to men." We'll become 
concerned about the underpriv- 
ileged, the sick and the lonely in 
our midst. Some of us will 
contribute time and money to 
spread happiness to those we 
love and those who are in need. 

We will also become victims 
of an increase in accidents, 
robberies and violent crimes. 
Not everyone feels peace and 
good will, unfortunately, even at 
this time of the year. Human 
vultures prey on society most 
brutally at Christmas. 

Be alert! Be happy! Be at 
peace! 

For (his upcoming Christinas 
holiday season, the staff of the 
Beachcomber wish you and 
yours A MERRY CHRISTMAS 
AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR! 



SG achieves little fall term 

Though each member" of SG may feel they are executing their 
duties, for which they were selected, they-as a group- have failed to 
provide valuable services which students deserve. 

To date SG has sponsored two concerts and minced many words 
^discussing future projects. But neither words or concerts required the 
spending of SAF monies for the benefit of students, who are required 
to pay the fees allocated to SG. 

SG is plagued with disorganisation and resignations, a fact easily 
understood when their leaders allow the activity to operate without 
specialized committees until recently-and now we are at the end of 
Fall term. 

SG should remember from where their money comes and begin to 
return that investment to the students . 

We would hope in the new year SG would resolve to aid students as 
a positive example in leadership and become a driving force on 
campus.

Gov't provides free auto info 



Detroit auto recalls have 
become so commonplace we 
scarely pay any attention to the 
news that the industry has 
issued another recall. Yet, when 
we are ready to buy a new or 
used car, we feel very little 
confidence in a particular 
model, not knowing how well it 
performs nor what problems 
there might be with it. Most of 
us must ask friends or the 
salesman. Where else can we 
turn? - 

In the past, American Auto 
Association (AAA) has made 
efforts to keep the buying public 
posted on the car market 
through their periodic reports. 

Nader consumer advocate 
groups have also obtained 
information and data on the 
weaknesses and problems with 
certain cars, and brought out 
these things in the news media. 



Government itself has taken 
action at times to push for full 
information to the public. 

Manufacturers usually make 
direct contact with hew car 
buyers when a defect is 
discovered with a certain model. 
As cars exchange owners, the 
time lapse between discovery of 
mechanical defect and eventual 
customer contact may become a 
hazard. Some second owners 
never hear of the recall and are 
unaware of problems. 

The obvious need for a central 
clearing house for such 
information on a national scale 
spurred the federal government 
to expand a system - it had 
operated previously , as an 
experiment. • 

The National Highway Traffic 
Safety Administration has 
established an "Auto Safety 
Hotline." Anyone may contact, 



toll free, around the clock, to 
report auto safety problems and

The number to call is 
800-424-9393. 

Motorists who use the hotline 
should have available the year, 
make and vehicle identification 
number. Since this is now a

Prison, penalties and public education 




Dear Editor, 

With regard to your editorial 
on capital punishment (Nov. 21) 
the following must be express- 
ed. 

It is absurd to resort to such 
means of punishment in order to 
"set an example" for those 
potential offenders (murderers). 
You would think that a society 
as advanced as we are in such 
fields as science and technol- 
ogy, could handle the problem 
more adequately or better yet, 
more intelligently; instead, we 
take refuge in one of the most 
primitive, inhuman ways of 
castigating an offender. 

One of the major problems 
with capital punishment is the 
lack of consistency. We literally 
commit the same act we 
condemn in the offender. How 
paradoxical can yciu get? 

A life sentencejis an absolute 
waste, for it is vetiy unlikely.that 
you will learn anything 
meaningful by corning in contact 
with more offenders and a four 
by six cell. 

Rehabilitation sounds very 
charitable, but is it the best 
way? It is too expensive and it 
does, not always work for all 



offenders. 

We must begin, by reconsid- 
ering our priorities. We are too 
busy building courthouses and . 
training law enforcers in order 
to have more of them patrolling 
the streets. We do not seem to 
be concerned with the basic 
causes of delinquent behavior in 
children and adolescents. We do 
not put the necessary energy 
into PREVENTING the prob- 
lems; instead we nourish them 
and let them grow, and when 
they finally hit us, we call out for 
capital punishment. 

If we can prevent the 
problems, let's not wait to cure 
them!

Students in high school say. 
they are not challenged and are 
unprepared for college. By the 
same token teachers have been 
attacked for inefficiency and 
lack of dedication. 

Have you witnessed a vast 
change? 

They say public education is 
on the decline in spite of the 
many innovations; that the need 
for reversal of techniques is 
obvious. Then, of course, there 
are the irresponsible students. 

1 don't want to view the 
situation from an unfair vantage 
point, but there is so much 
evidence for a need to return to 
basics. 

Best wishes,

Goals in the sky 
records soar high 



By Kathy Cavanaugh 
StaffWriter 

Put your head down and spiral away in a free-fall. Maybe then you 
could break the skydiving speed record of 185 miles per hour, as 
recorded by the Guiness Book of World Records. 

Couldn't do that? Afraid you'd inflict damage upon the earth by 
causing a crater in the crust? Oh well, that's the way the body 
crumbles. 

How about getting spaced out with Pioneer 10? It achieves a third 
cosmic speed, sufficient to break out of the solar system. 

But who would want to break out of the solar system? Most of us 
are content to stay grounded safely on earth. 

The first woman ever to orbit the earth (48 times to be exact) was 
content to stay grounded. 

In 1963 Valentina Tereshkova repeatedly pleaded to be returned, to 
the ground because of her giddiness. Perhaps she forgot her motion 
sickness pills. 

If she had been a sooty tern, she would have been happy to remain 
in the air. 

Sooty terns stay aloft continuously for four years after birth before 
returning to earth. Instead of "eat and run", they "eat and fly." 

You "eat and fly" trying to get to school on time, but don't think 
you're the fastest animal alive. 

The spine-tailed swift (appropriately named) has been clocked at 
speeds of 106.25 mph. It is so fast it cannot be seen with binoculars. 

Wonder how they measured its speed? They must have put a 
speedometer under its wing. But then how were they to see the 
speedometer if they couldn't even see the bird? 

A champagne cork can be seen quite clearly, especially when it 
puts a hole in your ceiling. 

The fongest distance a champagne cork has ever flown is 94 ft. Try 
lopping that one in four weeks, around midnight. 

Here's something that some of you who used to make paper 
airplanes°may be interested in. The longest distance a paper airplane 
has ever flown is a mile an d a quarter. If the airplane was one of your 
old trig tests with a goose egg perched on the top, you'd probably 
send it farther than that. 

Try seeing how far this paper will fly after you finish reading it. If 
you have trouble contact Celia Vock.

RichardS. DuPont oversaw the rebuilding 
and restoration of "Furtle Turtle", a B-25 
bomber. 

There are a number of B.-26's around, but 
"Furtle Turtle" is the only B-25 presently in 
use. QiuPotit calite her "a labor of love." 

Summit Aviation did all the work on the 
plane, DuPont recently purchased another 
B-25 from the Haitian government for spare 
parts, and two mechanics are in Haiti 
dismantling it. 



Summit's owner, Kip DuPont (Richard's 
cousin) has a DC-3 previously owned by 
Jerry E. Lewis. 

DuPont is developer of Providence Island. 
Under British rule, the island is located 100 
miles north of Haiti, 100 miles west of Grand 
Turk. .' 

"Furtle Turtle" landed at Palm Beach 
Aviation last week to pick up supplies for 
Providence. Also enroute was airport road 
and race track contractor Melvin Joseph. 

Joseph is building a 6000-foot airstrip and 
400 miles of roads on the island.

Man's flight aided by birds 



By Don Vaughan 
Venture Editor . 

There is an old proverb stating, that if 
man were meant to fly, he'd be born with 
wings. Well, man is not born with wings, 
but still he flies. So much for old proverbs. 
It hasn't always been easy, though. 
There was a time when flying was a bit 
more complicated than hopping. a 747 and; 
jetting to Scranton for dinner. Herein is a 
brief (but complicated) history of flying. 

In the beginning there was man. He had 
limited means of transportation. He could 
walk, which was tiring, or he could hop a 
county bus, which was dangerous, because 
in those days county buses were alive and 
ate people. 

Man wanted another means of 
transportation. He looked to the sky and 
saw birds flitting about on . feathered 
wings. Inspiration struck. Caveman Irving 
Oookakala was the first man to attempt 
flight by tying 567 birds to his body. It 
didn't work. 

But man didn't give up. Inspiration 
struck again. This time Irving Oookakala's 
brother Al was the inventor, plucking the 
feathers off 567 irate birds and fashioning 
them into two giant wings. Then he leaped 
off a cliff with dreams of flight and glory 
dancing in his head. This didn't work 
either. » . ' 

Man perservered, eons elapsed, 
dinosaurs died out, man invented the 
wheel and fire, industrialization came to 
be, but man was still on the ground. 

So he invented the balloon. It began as a 
child's toy, but inventor Seymour Oookaka 
(the great, great, great, great, etc) 
grandson of Irving, after he shortened his 
name), thought to himself, "If I were to 
make a giant balloon, fill it with hot air and 
tie a basket to the bottom, why ...it would 
take up lots of room and collect dust like 
crazy!" 

Friends calmed poor Seymour down and 
pointed out the advantages of balloon flight 



and how he could be a millionaire if he 
were to patent it. So he did. 

Balloons became the vogue. People took 
them everywhere, to the movies, the dress 
store and to the corner bakery for a loaf of 
bread. Pretty soon, everywhere you looked 
all you could see were balloons. Balloons 
filled with angry", swearing people who 
were late for dinner. Just as quickly as the 
balloon became popular, it died out. But 
Seymour didn't care, he was a millionaire. 

People went back to their horses and 
buggies-and didn't think a whole lot about 
flying, but pretty soon the germ of 
inspiration infected still another in a long 
line of infected inventors. This time it was 
a couple of guys named Wright. Not Orville 
and Wilbur, they come later. 

These guys were named Bert and Ziggy, 
and their inspiration was to tie 567 birds to 
their bodies and fly like that. Their 
intentions were good, but they were two 
million, years too late. Luckily, their 
inspiration died with them. 

Now we get to Orville and Wilbur, 
Bicycle repairmen they were, and they had 
a dream. They had a lot of dreams, 
actually, but one dream impressed them 
more than others. They wanted to fly by 
machine! 

So they stuck some wood and material 
together, added a prppellor and talked a 
local girl named Alice into playing 
stewardess. They carted the whole mess to 
Kittyhawk, N.C. where they and their 
flying machine floated in the air for almost 
a minute. It was just enough time for Alice 
to serve Orville a drink and start the 
in-flight movie, but short as the flight was, 
it was successful. Man's dream of flying 
had come true! 

Man flies all over the. place now in birds 
of steel. It's effective, but we heard of an 
inventor who is trying to perfect an even 
better way, something about breeding 
people to have wings. . .

When I was in sixth grade, 
one of my fellow students 
amazed me with his ability to 
construct seemingly perfect 
paper airplanes. I vowed that I, 
too, would learn this art. 

After many trying weekends, 
I mastered the ways of 
aerodynamics. Some people find 
paper airplanes very simple to 
construct, while others find 
them an impossible task. 

For you beginners, here are 



the instructions and diagrams to 
make the Dartmouth Dart and 
the Barnaby, two fine planes. 

To make the Dartmouth Dart, 
(3.) fold a sheet of typing paper 
in half lengthwise 1 (u), making 
a sharp crease. Unfold and 
crease lines 2(u), so paper edges 
meet at center crease. 2. Fold 
lines 3(u) so paper edges meet 
the center line. Refold the 
center crease. Fold one 4(d) line 
to form a wing. Turn plane over 
and fold other 4 (d). 3. Fold lines 
5 to make the stabilizers, staple 



or clip fuselage about a third of 
the way back from the nose. 

To make the Barnaby, fold 
paper in half, cross-wise first, 
unfold, and -make a series of 
nine 'A -inch folds lengthwise, 
using half the sheet. Broken 
lines indicate folds. 

Then fold again along the 
original crease, and press it 
Firmly. -Cut along solid line as 
■ shown. Turn wing tips up and 
tail fins down, and there you,, 
have it, a perfect Barnaby! 
Happy flying!

Foreign students find it very difficult 
because the school no longer offers 
English as a second language. Flory 
would like very much to see the English 
course reinstated, as well as some other 
changes. He feels it would be beneficial 
to all students at JC if speech was made a 
required general education course. 

Approximately 85 percent of the 
students at JC are scared to talk to their 
own peers," said Flory. 

Flory also said that one reason students 
do not take speech is peer pressure. 

"The students are scared to speak in 
front of a large group. One of the 
solutions to this problem would be in 
making the speech classes smaller. Let's 
have 20 kids to a class instead of 27." 

Flory has a real understanding of the 
handicaps some students face, but most 
of all, he cares. 



Phase I of patio complete 



Ev Patrick Heffernan

Completing the First phase of work 
Friday, the patio committee at JC South 
set thick tiles into the ground as part of 
the new patb setting in front of the 
administration. 

Florida Atlantic University's IFAU) 
ground crew assisted the group and it 
is hoped the setting will be completed bv 
Dee. 10. 

The sable display the South Center set 
■dp a, the gym on College Career Day was 
considered a success, 

Elaine Faatrey. one of the South 
representatives, said, "A lot of people 
didn't tew about mr campus down here 



and they were speaking about coming 
here." 

Plans that the south county campus 
have for the Jan. 14 homecoming are yet 
to be finalized. 

Anita Miranti, Chairperson of the 
Student Adivsory Board (SAB) explained, 
"South's homecoming queen is to be 
chosen on the basis of the one who sold 
the most seasonal tickets." 

Starting this week the Galleon is to be 
distributed at the Boca campus. 

Counselor Dr. Harris McGirt said, 
"We've only ordered 200 of these and 
people are to receive them on a first-come 
first-serve basis." 

Copies of the Galleon can be picked up 
in Trailer II.

aims 



for kick boxing title 



By Jim Swann 
StaffWriter 

The world of professional kick boxing is a world 
filled with hard knocks and plenty of action. Steve 
Shepherd, a student here lives in that world and is 
steadily climbing to the top of his middleweight 
class. ■ 

Shepherd, who has a 15-0 record and is currently 
the Southern champion, started working in the 
martial arts at the age of 21, a little over six years 
ago. "I started primarily as a means of self 
discipline," Shepherd said. 

Shepherd likes to fight, which is not to confuse 
him with some bully type. On the contrary, he likes 
the contact in the same way that a boxer enjoys to 
hit. 

Kick boxing as a regulation sport has been going 
on for about three years, so Shepherd had no idea 
when he started working in the martial arts that one 
day he would end up as a world contender for the 
middle weight crown in kick boxing. 

Shepherd's entry into kick boxing came as an 
accident. After defeating a rather well known 
opponent in a standard karate match, Shepherd was 
then challenged by his foe to a kick boxing match. 
After preparing and getting in shape, he made his 
debut into kick boxing and the stage for his rise was 
set. 

Currently, sitting at the top of the world 
middleweight class is a much publicized Bill 
"Superfoot" Wallace. Wallace is a formidable kick 
boxer who, though despite his nickname, usually 
knocks opponents out with his hands and not his 
feet. This is the man that Shepherd hopes to meet 
"soon and deprive of the world title.' To achieve this, 
Shepherd works out regularly on a rigorous 
schedule. According to Shepherd, kick boxing 
demands top physical conditioning and a lot of 
painstaking work. 

The sport has a long road to travel to match it's 
sister sport, boxing, but there is great optimism for 
the sport. Many people involved in kick boxing feel 
that it has a definite future and that JC's own Steve 
Shepherd will be involved in that future.

After two weeks of action the basketball squad 
has earned a 3-2 record but more importantly is the 
fact that they have shown much promise. 

Tilte Pacers won their season opener 95-94 over 
Manatee on Nov. 18. The game, which was won in 
the last seconds, was a pleasing victory for coach 
Ceravolo over long time adversary, Harry Kinnan. 
Ktnnan, in his first outing as coach of Manatee, 
was the head coach of Lake Worth high when 
Ceravolo was at Twin Lakes. 

Coming back from a 51-43 halftime deficit, the 
Pacers rattled Manatee with a press that forced 1 1 
turnovers in the second half alone. Manatee still 
maintained a 94-93 lead when the Pacers called 
time out with 18. secopds remaining. The Pacers 
tried to set up. a good shot but the best they could 
manage was 34-foot heave by Dirk Jamison that 
fell in with only three seconds left. 

High scorer for the Pacers was Derrick Paul with 
24 points. Don Hewston had 20, Mike Bennett, 18, 
and Dirk Jamison contributed 14 points. ' 

On Friday, Nov. 19, the team suffered their first 
loss of the season to a small, quick Florida College 
squad, by a score of 109-96. :" 

The Pacers, despite a height advantage, were 
unable to hold clown the speedy Falcon guards. 
Florida College scored'almost half of its points off 
the fast break with guards Mike Pringle and, 
William Likely, teaming for 52 points between 
them. Pringle had the game high with a total of 34 
points, 

Leading the Pacer effort was 6-foot-7 forward 
Bill Buchanan with 22 points. Shack Leonard had 
21, Dirk Jamison, 14, and freshman Steve Hart 
came off the bench to add 1 1 points. 

The Pacers then ruined a perfect 3-0 record of 
Belleville (111.) junior College by a 106-97 score on 
the first night of the Gold Coast Invitational, 



Playing a balanced game with five men in double 
figures, the Pacers were able to control the game 
most of the way. The team took a commanding 
. 52-40 halftime lead and appeared to be on the way 
to an easy win, when both Mike Bennett and Don 
Hewston got into foul trouble and had to leave the 
action". Belleville took advantage of the situation 
and closed the margin to 74-71 . Bill Buchanan took 
over the scoring though and the Pacers built their 
lead back up to 86-75 and then held on for their 
second win of the year. 

Coach Ceravolo has seen some positive things in 
his Pacers and one has been the improvement of 
6-foot-8 pivotman Don Hewston. Don had 19 points 
against Belleville and hauled down 14 rebounds. 
%The next night the Pacers suffered their second 
loss of the year'to Sullivan (Ky.) Junior College by 
a score of 82-80. The loss came on a 10-foot jump 
shot by Sullivan's Doug White with two seconds 
remaining. White was also the game's high scorer 
with 42 points. 

Sullivan was held close by using a press but 
White made the difference. The Pacers also - 
suffered cold shooting from the foul line. 

Mike Bennett led the team with 24 points. He 
was followed by DonHewstonwith 20 and Derrick 
Paul with 11. 

Then on the next night the team downed 
Meramac Junior College of St. Louis 83-75 in a 
game that appeared to be just one big foul shooting 
contest. 

The game set a new record for the Pacer gym 
with a' total of 66 total fouls. Coming out on the 
good end were the Pacers as they capitalized on 31 
of 39 foul shot attempts. On the bad side was the 
fact that the Pacers committed 27 fouls of their own 
and had two men, Bob Weber and Don Hewston, 
foul out. Despite the numerous fouls, the Pacers 
played well enough to overcome a 40-37 halftime 
deficit and up their record to 3-2.

Take-off on hit show 






DJ Alan Funn to host 



By Kathy Cavanaugh 
Staff Writer 

The Second Annual Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) 
Gong Show is to feature many exciting and unusual 
acts as Alan Funn from WIRK radio hosts the 
show. 

An unprecedented imitation of the British rock 
group, "The Sex Pistols" is scheduled. 

Krista Carol, a renowned night club singer, will 
play some tunes on her guitar as she lends her 
voice to the audience. 

Other numbers including the singing of the 
"National Embalming School Theme Song," and 
Karen Knoures as "Mrs. Jean the Dancing 
Machine" are all ready to take the stage. 

Rumors have it that a belly dancer may wiggle 



her way into the show and a magician may appear 
from nowhere. 

Whoever appears will be competing for a fifty 
dollar First place cash prize as well as a trophy 
donated by the JC baseball team. 

Robin Wotton, PTK president, said that the $50 
prize is prompting a great deal of people to inquire 
about participating in the show. 
If you have an act you would like to present, come 
lo the Gong Show rehearsal in the'JC auditorium, 
Saturday January 28, 7:00 p.m. 

The Gong Show is to be held in the JC 
auditorium, Sunday January 29, 8:00 p.m. 

Tickets are $2.00 in advance and $2.50 at the 
door. They may be obtained from any PTK 
member or stop by the PTK office in BA 131.

SG seeks approval 

Game room needed 



By Patrick Heffeman 
Staff Writer 

The possibility of a game 

room for the student activity 

. center still appears feasible and 

picking up momentum all the 

time. 

During last Wednesday's SG 
senate meeting some of the 
virtues of a game room were 
extolled by senator Mike 
Lanigan. 

Lanigan pointed out that the 
absence of a game room at JC 
would be a unique situation 
when so many other college's 
have one. 

"JC would be deprived of a 
social situation we need," said 
Lanigan. 

Although the game room has 
been approved by both the SG 
senate and executive board it 
still needs other approval. 

SG senate president Ronald 

.Pugh said, "We have to start 

' with Dean Robert Moss and get 

his approval and take it from 

there." 

If the recreation area is 
approved a student (s) will be 
needed to secure the area. This 
is to be a person to take care of 
supplies, etc. With this term the 
various forms- of money to 
compensate ' the student- were 
discussed such as homorarium. 



student assistant (minimum 
wage) and scholarship. 

The JC street signs for 
walkways that were granted by 
SG late last year have already 
been completed. 

"All they do now is have to be 
activated," said Pugh. 

Plans to replace Senate Clerk 
Deatrice Johnson, who is ill, are 
to be decided at a later time. 

This term two senators were 
appointed. They are Maria 
Sardinas and Lindsley Ho. 

In a matter concerning 
legislative particulars' Pugh 
corrected members of the 
senate for taking their problems 
elsewhere other than senate 
president. 

"I'm the one to ask in these 
matters" and not the teachers. If 
you have a question I'm the one 
to contact and not by taking it to 
the teachers." 

Also he added, "I have the 
authority to take it to the 
proper-agency." 

Hopes to have political 
speakers (state legislators) on 
campus are one of the things 
being planned according to 
Pugh. 

The idea for concerts hasn't 
come up yet. 

"This wasn't viable and laid 
dead for awhile," added Pugh. 



Ron DePriest, Hell's Angel 
'turned' minister spoke to a 
capacity crowd of about 200 
students and faculty in the SAC 
lounge. 

The stocky, 6'3" DePriest 
related the details of his home 
life that led to his life of drugs, 
death and debauchery. 

"My father would chain me 
hand and feet to a column," 
DePriest said with a calmness 
belying the trauma of the 
experience. "Then he would 
punch me in the stomach until I 
cried. Then he would punch me 
until I stopped crying. " 

DePriest's frustration of 
love-hate relationship towards 
his father led to his involvement 
with violence at an early age. 

"When I was 13 I began to 
carry a gun. One day in the 
playground. a guy, just horsing 
around, called me a punk. 
Before I knew what I was doing, 
I shot him. He died in my 
arms." 

That was the first of five 
murders for which DePriest 
claims responsibility. His life of 
violence worked both ways, 
however. By his 26th birthday 
DePriest says he was shot eight 
times, stabbed at least 27 times, 
and spent every birthday for 
eight years in the hospital. In 
his own words, he was 
"accustomed to pain." 

The change in DePriest came 
when he stopped at his mother's 
house in northern California to 
pick up some possessions before 
he moved to Kansas City to 
escape arrest. His mother had 
recently converted to Christian- 
ity, and to DePriest the change 
in her was obvious. 

"Until that time," DePriest 



said, "I had seen my mother 
smile maybe four times. After 
her conversion, though, her 
smile was "ear to ear". 

The climax for DePriest came 
when he attended church with 
his mother. His idea was to 
"bust that preacher's jaw and 
show everyone what a sissy he 
was. When I got to church, 
though, I found about 1400 
people there. I knew I could 
handle 60 of them but I didn't 
know about the other 1340." 

Instead, DePriest stayed and 
listened. Not that he didn't try 
to strike back* but when he did 
he found his arm mysteriously 
powerless. When he tried to 
stand, he felt a strong push back 
into his chair. Finally he 
managed to stand, only to 
topple over onto his knees, with 
his head in his mother's lap. 
When he rose he had "accepted 
Jesus as the Son of God. " 

Now, DePriest has traded his 




lORMliR HELL'S ANGEL 
member Ron DePriest explains 
his shattered childhood. 

colors for a ministerial collar. In 
addition to his career as a 
minister and a faith healer, he 
has published a book, Loco, and 
lias appeared in six motion 
pictures. 

Ron DePriest was brought to 
JC through the courtesy of the 
'Full Gospel Businessmen's 
Fellowship, International. 



UF bargaining resumes today 

After recessing negotiations in August with the United Faculty .(UF) and the administration $200,000 
apart, bargaining resumes today in the third round of discussion over their differences. 

On Jan. 10, Special Master Jerome Greene of Miami called a meeting resulting from a conversation 
between himself, the administrations' representative and Chief Union Negotiator Glenn Marstellar. 

The group decided to get together prior to. the actual negotiations to "agree on the areas where we 
have disagreement," said Marsteller. 

Among the areas of dispute are: 
•co-curricular duties (duties on campus other than teaching) , 

• obtaining temporary duty elsewhere 

• whether union members can get release pay for pursuing union activities 

• grounds for firing teachers ' 

• the chances of picketing if the union decides it necessary 

Specifically, a Special Master is a neutral third party, in this case appointed by the Public Employee 
Relations Commission (PERC), who considers the claims of both sides and offers the fairest solutions. 

However, as Marsteller says, because the suggestions are not binding, "the administration can pick 
and choose what it thinks best", the Union's experience throughout the state is that such procedures are 
rarely successful. '.._■■ 

To the future, Marsteller says, "Since the board has directed negotiations from the management side I 
don't really expect any gains. . .but you have to be optimistic. " ■

While many people may not 
know it, the public discussion or 
debate of a -subject is known as 
forensics. 

The forensics team, which 
last year saw one of it's 
members gain first place in 
national competition, is seeking 
new members to fill in the void 
created by graduating speakers. ■ 

* 

The team competes against 
other colleges and universities 
from Florida, as well as. at 
national competition in Wash- 
ington, D.C. 

Tournaments consist of two 
events: individual, which range 
from hand puppet shows to 
recitals of Shakespeare, and ' 
debate, which teams two 
participants, each with opposing 
viewpoints on an assigned topic. 
Each opponent then tries to 
rebut the other's convictions. 

Some of the trips slated in the 
immediate future include trav- 
eling to Pensacola Jan. 27 and 
28 to compete against other 
state junior colleges. On Feb. 
3-5, the team plans to go to 
Stetson University to compete in 
the Florida Inter-College tourn- 
ament, which encompasses all 
state colleges and universities. 

Last year JC was the only 
school to place people in every 
final event. 

Food, lodging and transpor- 
tation are provided for the team, 
advised by John M. Connolly,' 
who said team members benefit 



from the program by realizing a 
"sense of who they are" as well 
as developing "poise, and in 
turn, self confidence." 

All persons who might be 
interested can contact Connolly 
in his office B A 309.

"Comber makes 
x 78 resolutions 

Despite numerous staff changes and a new bi-monthly publishing 
schedule, the 'Comber will continue to deliver accurate, informative 
news and contemporary feature articles. Among our long range 
resolutions for 1978 are our goals to: 

* serve as the voice of the students in both campus and civic life 

* work with student government in a constructive manner to dispel • 
the existing apathetic atmosphere 

* actively pursue the awarding of grants-in-aid to deserving students 
in all activities 

* motivate the Board of Trustees to a more open attitude concerning 
the future of JC 

* present fairly the negotiations between the faculty and 
administration 

Our achievement of these goals depends, in large part, on our 

ability to publish on a frequent basis. To this end we encourage our 

"readers to patronize our advertisers. With your support we will 

continue to present the same quality news that has consistently made 

the Beachcomber an award winning paper. 



Testing would 
benefit teachers 

A special advisory committee to Education Commissioner Ralph 
Turlington opposes any plan that requires teachers to pass written 
tests to continue teaching. 

"Teaching is so complex and comprehensive no written test can 
adequately measure the essence of what a teacher is or does in a 
classroom," the committee stated. "We caution against the 
development of any evaluation based solely on written tests." 

Many white collar professions require complex and comprehensive 
examinations to become licensed to practice. To name a few — 
doctors, nurses, certified public accountants, real estate brokers, 
attorneys, architects and engineers. Their prestige is increased by 
rigid testing procedures. Standards of their profession are protected 
in the process. 

Who would allow an unlicensed or untested doctor -to perform 
surgery? Would we allow our legal affairs to be handled by a lawyer 
who refused to take the bar exam? 

A qualified, competent teacher should not hesitate to prove his 
worth any more than other professionals. To protest would seem 
paranoid. Each should rightfully be an expert in his chosen field. • 

Education is no more complex or comprehensive than the other 
licensed professions mentioned earlier. If, in fact, it is on the same 
level of skill, then it .would seem even more essentia] to certify and 
prove competency. , ' 

Teachers are experts on testing. As familiar as they are to this 
mode of. evaluation, they should have no difficulty in passing a state 
test. 

However, there should be no further testing done, once they have 
been certified through a state test. Other exams by the state do not 
require further evaluation at a later date. Teachers should not be 
treated differently. Once they pass, that should satisfy the state and 
the people. 

Eliminating the few who prove to be unqualified to teach would 
enhance the status and the stature of the majority who do prpve 
competent. Weeding out unsuitable personnel would not only protect 
the profession but would also cut out some of the dead wood 
protected by time of service, and give new, upcoming teachers a 
better chance to enter the field. 

Education has suffered setbacks because of politics and social 
upheavals. We need the best teachers we can get to bind up the 
school wounds and start turning out educated students again.

HUMPHREY CAMPAIGNING IN 1972 on campus with Edwin Pugh, Social Science Instructor, and 
unidentified donkey. 

Requiem for a fallen warrior 



By Dr. Samuel S. Bottosto 
Guest Columnist 

Sen. Hubert Horatio Humphrey lost his battle 
with cancer last week, but. he won a special, 
permanent place in the hearts of his countrymen. 
For over 30 years he stayed in the forefront of 
American politics, serving in elective public offices 
as mayor, vice president and U.S. senator. 

A consummate politician^ perhaps he was 
America's most ardent advocate and practitioner 
of participatory democracy and one of the greatest 
legislators in our history. 

All of us at JC can be justly proud to have been 
honored by Sen. Humphrey's presence here on the 
eve of the 1972 Democratic primary. He was the 
highest ranking elected public official ever to visit 
JC. 

It was my good fortune to have had the privilege 
of introducing the "People's Democrat" on that 
historic occasion. The Humphreys were 
appreciative of the advanced preparation and the 
hospitality extended to them. Vice President 
Mondale, Humphrey's political protege, referred 
to him as "America's incomparable creator of 
great plans and grand designs." Undoubtedly, the 
greatest of Humphrey's legislative accomplish- 



ments (and they were legion) was his authorship 
and floor leadership of the Civil Rights Act of 1-964. 

He was a son of the prarie, had been a licensed 
druggist and a college professor in the field of 
social science. 

President Carter expressed the sentiment of 
most Americans when he said, 

"From time to time our nation is blessed by the 
promise of men and women who bear the' mark of 
greatness, who help us see a better vision of what 
we can become. Hubert Humphrey was such a 
man." 

Sen. Edmund Muskie, Humphrey's running 
mate in the presidential campaign of 1968, 
provided a clear, o.verall evaluation of Humphrey's 
political career with his comment, 

"I don't think there's a more beloved figure in 
American politics today. If the country had known 
him and thought of him in 1968 as they do today, 
he would have won the presidency by an 
overwhelming landslide." 

I know I speak for all of us at JC when I say that 
Hubert Humphrey has left us an incomparable 
legacy of public service. At the end he gave us an 
inspiring example of how to die with dignity, 
courage and with meaning.

with clockwork consistency - and 
we are led to believe that her 
only joy i s teaching her 
students, but even they fade as 
she is caught up more and more 
in a world of sex, drugs, and 
violence. The movie is a 
paradox. 

The men she meets in the 
bars are S.O.B.'s searching only 
for quick one night stands which 
Theresa is quite happv to 
provide. Of particular interest is 
Tony (Richard Cere), a 
street-tough kid who enters 
Theresa's life and won't leave. 
Cere's performance is excellent! 
thoroughly terrifying as the 
hostility he feels toward the 



his 



world erupts during 
encounters with Theresa. 

Brooks started out with a 
good idea from a good book, but 
something went wrong. Brooks 
is not to be totally blamed, nor is 
Keaton who will probably 
receive an Oscar for her 
performance, but the movie 
doesn't mesh and becomes lost. 

The story is about a lost 
person, not sex, and the 
boredom of Keaton's repetitious 
moaning and groaning in 
darkened love making makes 
the viewer want Woody Allen to 
stick his head in with a witty 
comment. Woody's never 
around when you need him.

Jogging for health, happiness and Jenner 




tip.' 






By Sonny Nyman 

Staff Writer ** 

While pondering who could run faster, me, or me running after Bruce Jenner, I 
began to wonder what's been going on in John Prince Park... and 
Milwaukee. ..and San Jose... 

"Wanna put your feet into a pair of really hot sneakers?" said a radio shoe 
advertisement. • 

Thousands upon thousands of foot-loose and sneaker-clad people have put 
jogging side by side with baseball and hot dogs as an All- American pastime . 

Now I ask you truly. Why do you pick up your knees and trot off into the 
sunrise? 

A. Because it's supposed to be good for you. '* 

B. If you don't you'll be ostracized by peer pressure groups. 

C. It's a chance to be one-on-one with your muscular content and mind. 

D. All of the above. 
For whatever the reason (and there are oodles) we are jog crazy. Joggers ate 

takin' it to the streets, bike paths, trails and roadsides like never before. 

Who was once a"Sundayafternoon sofa-sitter" is now a candidate for the Ordet 
of the Winged Sneaker. 

Aside from the automotive industry, joggers are responsible for more pavement 
poured out and pressed down to tread upon in this country than any other sport 
that has a reason to tread on cement. 

The bike trail has long been a part of John Prince Park, but the amount of 
joggers grew to such proportions that mileage markers sprang up alori"^ the 
beaten path. Thanks to John Prince, people don't have to jog up and down U.S.I. 

People who never really "got into" a sport and stuck with it are finding 
themselves rising early for a morning spin around the block. 

It's not that the whole country grew itchy feet overnight. Itchy feet had nothing 
to do with it. 

We've grown more health conscious and have finally awakened to the fact that a 
good percentage of our population is out of shape. Hopefully, in a few years the 
term "out of shape" may be another historical phrase like "I shall return". 



But is all this high-stepping madness just a fad — and just how good is jogging 
frtryou? 

The exact statistics are hazy, but jogging has become a part of many people's 
morning curriculum in almost every city. 

Since jogging is quite strenuous, it's always safe to know you're in good health 
before deciding you're going to do the four-minute mile in three minutes. 

As with all medical advice there are pros and cons, but the law of moderation is 
still considered good advice by all doctors . 

Many people believe jogging over the years will make them live longer. Heart 
specialist Dr. Alan Marcus, D.O., P.A., of North Palm Beach, says, "There are a 
lot of reports now that jogging doesn't increase longevity, but there's reason to 
say it makes sense to keep in shape... only the problem is if you overdo it you're 
going to get into trouble. " 

As for the possibility of strengthening the heart, he says, "It creates greater 
endurance, but that doesn't mean you're going to live longer.,' ' 

Moderation is the key to successful jogging and there are a few easy steps to 
follow if you want to get out on the paths on the right foot and avoid a close 
encounter of the heart attack kind: 

1. Start off simple like jogging in place every morning from one place in the house 
to another like from the refrigerator to the sofa. 

2, Increase your distance and enduranceby running around the house (hope the 
neighbors won't laugh). 

3^ Pace yourself with a dog (difficulties may arise if the dog is a chihuahua or great 
dane). ' 

4. Pace around the block with someone slightly slower than you are so you'll feel 
like you're going faster. ' t 

5. Avoid pacing behind cars. 

6. You're ready to solo on the path of your choice. 



With all the advice the many joggers have given me on how to jog, and since 
there aren't too many rules to follow, I might as well join this nation full of 
leap-happy trotters. Who knows? I might catch Jenner.

Prices rise 



Book buys no bargain 



By Dong Hughes 

Editor 
Where is human mature #s weak as in a book 
store? 

. - Henry Ward Beecher 

A noble thought, Mr. Beecher, but at JC the 
problem is less a weakness in human nature than a 
matter of departmental policy. With the price of 
textbooks up 10-15%, and some courses requiring 
up to five separate volumes, it's not surprising to 
tind a carefully balancedbudget toppled with a short 
stop into the bookstdte. * 

"The average student spends about .$60 or $70 a 
term on books," according to Ruth Broft, manager 
ot the bookstore. Before you run down to complain 
about your book bill , though, remember that certain 
classes call for single texts that can make up one 
third of that amount. For example, in the nursing 
program a required book, "Medical Surgical 
Nursing: A Psychophysiologic Approach", lists at 

Couple that with* the textbook of Medical 



Surgical Nursing" at $19.75 and the "Encyclopedia 
& Dictionary of Medicine and Nursing" for $14.50 
and the future nurse is ready for a trip to the 
financial aids office, whose close proximity to the 
bookstore seems to be more a matter of design than 
chance'. 

On the other side of the fence, the thrifty student 
could sign up for any of the second module 
developmental math courses and spend no more 
than $,95on any of the three books available, If math 
is not your style, how about the "Comprehensive 
Occupational Therapy Evolution Scale" which at 
$.83 is a steal for the title alone. 

At any rate, don't blame the bookstore for the 
dent it makes in your wallet. Says Broft, "On most 
books we only make 20 percent profit, and 17 
percent goes to paying overhead." 

For those of you who are still packing sandwiches 
to school to recoup your textbook losses, chin up. 
After the term is over you can always sell'your books 
back to the store. Remember that $22 Medical 
Surgical Nursing Book? You may even get back $11 
on it. 



Staffers learn their alpha-betas at feedback center 



By Laurie Mann 
Staff Writer 

There is a suite of offices neatly 
tucked next to a staircase in the Key 
building at 701 Northlake Blvd., in 
Lake Park. 

They look like ordinary offices, 
there is nothing unusual or special 
about them, the faces inside are 
friendly, the furniture tasteful. So 
what's so special about "office 
number 208? The feeling! 

Suite 208 is the headquarters for 
the Biofeedback Institute, headed by 
psychiatrist Dr. Alejandro Villalobas 
and Kathy Eggleton, M.H.T. 

Eggleton is a JC graduate, 
™ , a , licens ed astrologer. Dr. 
Villalobas studied at Harvard during 
the first biofeedback experiments. 

Biofeedback is a program of 
self-awareness," says Dr. Villalo- 
°as. It opens the door . to your 
unconscious through a form of 
meditation." 

The ideal state of consciousness 
•s known as 'alpha' and is achieved 
when the heartbeat and blood 
pressure are reduced and body 
temperature increased

Control, which measures body 
temperature. , 

Three suction cups are attached to 
the forehead and a wire is strung 
along the right arm and attached to 
the tip of the third finger. Both 
machines are hooked to a set of 
, earphones which produce the 
feedback. 

The faster and . louder . the 
feedback, the farther frpm the 
desired state. The average length of 
time for a person to achieve alpha 
through the institute's program is 
three months, and includes 
practicing a half-hour a day.' 1 

The program starts out with an 
interview between patient and 
counsellor. After the initial interac- 
tion, you are hooked up to the 
machines twice a week and left alone 
for a half hour. After coming off the 
machine, Dr. Villalobas or Ms. 
Eggleton will talk with you about 
your progress. 

The program costs $25 a week with 
counseling and special rates can be 
worked out for those who do not want 
counseling. 

• The price is small compared to! the 
good health and feelings achieved 
through the regular practice of 
biofeedback,

high points of a speech given on 
campus recently. 

The announced purpose given 
of the address made by the 
National Committee Against 
Repressive Legislation (NCARL) 
President Fred Wilkinson, given 
to a crowded lecture room in the 
Criminal Justice building, was 
to expose the dangers to a 
personal freedom contained in a 
bill presently before the U.S. 
Senate under the title "The 
Criminal Code Reform Act of 
1977." 

Because of a lack of handout 
materials, however, Wilkinson 
chose instead to chronicle 
briefly the illegal actions of the 
House Committee on Un-Amer- 
ican Activities. Wilkinson was 
instrumental . in having the 
committee disbanded in 1975. 

Wilkinson then went on to 
give a spiritual autobiography of 
himself as he detailed the 
changes that 'caused him to 
leave the wealthy home of his 
parents and discover the world 
of poverty and disease. First in 
Chicago, then on the Bowery 

»?•« • final,y in Jerusalem,' 
Wilkinson met beggars and pan 
handlers who showed him the 
elitism of his lifestyle. 

"My family was so wealthy 
that when I graduated from 
Beverly Hills High School, the 
depression had been going on 
for six years. However, I did not 
even know- there was a 
depression," he recalled. 

The speech, given Wed.,- Jan. 
11. was arranged by the 
International Women's League 
For Peace and Freedom as 
Wilkinson made a 30-dav 
speaking tour starting before 

Christmas fr 0m his home in Los

Pacers 2-2 in conference ploy 

Pacers fight player loss 



PHOTO BY SONNY NYMAN 

PACER MIKE BENNET drives against Indian River. Plagued by 
player losses, the Pacers lost 100-86. 



By Jim Swann 
Sports Editor • 

Pacer basketball squad has recently been faced 
with a problem that could prove quite damaging to 
the season. Due to academic ineligibility the team 
has last six players and with them goes much of the 
squad's height. Though after their past three 
games, two of which were wins, the Pacers showed 
that they are not .going to give in to their 
misfortunes. 

The Pacers won their first Division 4 game on 
Jan. 11, over Miami-Dade South 70-68 in a 
comeback effort. The Pacers, hurting from the loss 
of six players to ineligibility and Benny Goldwire to 
the flu, were trailing at halftime, 37,-27. 

Guard Shack Leonard who had been held 
scoreless in the first half came back and scored 15 
points in the second half and led the Pacers 
comeback effort. 

Leonard led the Pacer scoring with 15 points and 
was followed closely by Mike (Moose) Owens with 
14. Mike Bennett added 12 to the effort and Bill 
Buchanan liad-lO. 

Former Lake Worth high star Ron Taylor led the 
Jaguars with 16 points. 

The Pacers three nights later were again looking 
for another comeback as they trailed Indian River 
by ten at halftime. This time though, the comeback 
was just not in the script and the Pacers lost 
100-86. 

Starting slowly, the Pacers were down 9-0 before 
they got their first bucket. Indian River held the 
lead throughout the half but could not pull away as 
the Pacers hung close. 

In the second half the Pioneers built up some big 
leads and at one point led by as much as 22. The 
Pacers plagued by coldness at the foul line, making 
only 12-of-26, and lacking height from their 



misfortune were no match for the tough Pioneers. 

Freshman Ed Turner of Indian River was the 
Pacers big problem, The 6-6 Turner scored 34' 
points and helped the Pioneers dominate the 
boards. 

Sam Weathersbee and Moose Owens scored 20 
and 16 points respectively for the Pacers. 
Weathersbee also combined with Bill Buchanan to 
grab 1 1 rebounds apiece. 
In their last outing on Jan. 18, against 
Miami-Dade North the Pacers looked like true 
giant killers. Hurting in the size department the 
Pacers resorted to outhustling their taller opponent 
enroute to a 79-60 Division 4 victory. 

The first half was filled with turnovers and 
ended with the Pacers holding a slim 35-32 lead. 
Bill Buchanan, now one of the big Pacers, did 
much of the rebounding work as he battled 
Miami's 6-11 Bryan Stephens. The Falcons 
attempted to stop the Pacers with a press but they 
were unsuccessful. 

In the second half the Pacers came back strong 
as Mike Bennett scored six straight points and 
opened their lead to 51-42. It never got close after 
I hat point as the Pacers, who even .installed a four 
corner offense at one point, held on for their 
second conference win against as many losses. 
. Leading the Pacers scoring was Shack Leonard 
with 16 points, Dirk Jamison and Sam 
Weathersbee had 13 and Bill Buchanan added 12. 

The win was one of encouragement as it showed 
the Pacers could stay with bigger teams and with- 
some hard work could overcome their Size 
disadvantage. One thing is certain and that is the 
fact that the Pacers are not going to just roll over 
and die. 



Major Leagues draft 
three Pacer players 



► ► 



By Paul Jenkins 
Staff Writer 

Dan Weppner, Ted Adkins 
and Scott Benedict, of the JC 
baseball team, were all drafted 
by the Major Leagues in the 
January 'draft. 

It appears that all three of 

them will play this season for'JC 

with the hope that if they have 

■ good years they will be offered 

more money, 

Weppner, • a pitcher, was 
drafted by the Boston Red Sox 
even though he had not 
expected to be drafted because 
of a bad season last year. 

"About six months ago 



Boston asked if I would like to 
play pro ball. I told them that I 
would but, that was all I had 
' heard," said Weppner. 

"I guess they need left-hand- 
ed pitching," Weppner said. 
"They only have seveti 
left-handers in their organiza- 
tion." 

The Red Sox want him to play 
this season at JC so that" they 
can see him play a bit more and 
then they will be back to talk to 
him about signing. 

Adkins, also a pitcher, said 
that he will probably wait for the 
June draft before signing. 

He was not upset by being 



the lowly Seattle 
should be able to 
in their organiza- 



drafted by 
because he 
rise quicker 
tion. 

Benedict, a catcher, was 
drafted by the Montreal Expos. 
"It gives me a chance to play for 
West Palm Beach where I was 
born," he said. 

Benedict said, "They will 
come and see me play and if I 
have a good year at JC I could 
get more money." 

Coach Dusty Rhodes is 
pleased that all three will most 
likely be playing for him this 
year and he expects them to be a 
big help to the team.

Super Bowl or Super Error 



<ftu 



By Jim Swann 
Sports Editor 

Another Super Bowl Sunday has come and gone 
and, like so many of its predecessors, has left most 
fans with a feeling of dissatisfaction. 

Cowboy fans undoubtedly rejoiced at the 
outcome' as their heroes dismantled the Denver 
Broncos, 27-10. Dallas fans although cannot be 
totally satisfied either as the Cowboys played a far 
from perfect ball game. Fumbling the ball six 
times, two of which were lost, and being assessed 
94 yards in penalties is not one of the better 
performances by a Super Bowl champion. 

Fortunately for the Cowboys was the fact that 
they only lost two of those fumbles or the score 
might have been different. A prime example of this 
was the fumble by Dallas rookie Tony Hill early in 
the first period. Hill tried to field a Denver punt 
that he could have let bounce into the end zone. He 
bobbled the ball near the goal and then had to dive 
into a swarm of Broncos to recover the ball just 
outside of the goal, A Denver fecovery here would 



have set up an inevitable touchdown and would 
have given the. Broncos the early momentum 
instead of letting Dallas achieve that boost. With a 
lead, Craig Morton might have been less apt to get 
rid of the ball when he was in trouble and this 
would have cut down greatly on. the Denver 
turnovers. 

True, Dallas could have given up more points 
than they did, but on the other hand they should 
have scored more also. Dallas failed to capitalize 
on numerous Denver mistakes that could have 
made the score even more lopsided. 

But enough picking on the Cowboys for their 
less-than-perfect play, for they came to New 
Orleans with just one job to do and they did it. The 
important: thing is that they are the Super Bowl 
champs and they gave Tom Landry something to 
smile about, which is something rare for the Dallas 
coach. 

From the Denver outlook the game was certainly 
not one to cap off a miracle year with.

Faculty may vote to quit union 



By Eden White 

News Editor 
Awaiting the decision of a neutral arbitrator who will not give a 
ruling until March, a group of faculty members has. filed with the 
Public Employees Relations Commission (PERC) for an election. 

Chief Union Negotiator Glenn Marsteller said a decertification 
election, to be held Feb. 17, will determine if the wishes of the 
majority of the faculty dictate that the Union represent them before 
the administration and the Board of Trustees (BOT). 

"If we lose, the United Faculty is no longer recognized as 
representative of the people in the bargaining unit," he said. 

Nevertheless, all are waiting for the rulings of the Special Master] 
who is a third party and will present his version of a reasonable 
compromise between the faculty and the administration. 



"Whether the board will accept it remains to be seen;.. I just don't 
know," says Marsteller, "I think if the Special Master rules in favor 
of the union the administration will reject it." 

"Personally, I think if it's anything like last year's ruling they'll 
accept what favored their position, and, frankly, the union will do the 
same." 

Echoing Marsteller, JC President Dr. Harold Manor said that 
"Whether I'll agree with whatever the Special Master says remains, 
to be seen because we don't know what he's going to say." 

Unresolved issues between the two bargaining units were 
discussed during the two and a half days of hearings held recently.

Palms adorn campus ~ 

Beautification continuing 



"WHEN AN Education- 
al environment is up- 
graded, the students 
will respond positively." 
Fred HoIIing referring to 
beautification program 
taking place on campus. 



'Unknown Feet' win show 






c-d 




In an age when it is 
fashionable to cover everything 
with asphalt and concrete, JC is 
reversing the trend with trees 
and shrubbery. 

A glance anywhere around 
campus reveals newly planted 
palm trees. Continuing Educa- 
tion Coordinator Fred Rolling is 
responsible for the undertaking, 
mainly using palms of the 
Malayan variety as well as other 
kinds of ornamental trees and 
plants. 

Normally attaining a height of 
40 feet, the tree is one of few 
naturally resistant to the 
dreaded "lethal yellowing" 
that has taken its toll on the 
once abundant Royal Palm 
variety throughout South Flor- 
ida. 

The trees were donated by 
Dr. F.J.Dolly, who is affiliated 
with the Malayan Nursery in 
Lake Worth. Valued at a total of 
nearly $30,000, the 37 trees are 
being planted by the JC ground 
crew in conjunction with 
members of a county program . 

Having envisioned the project 
for several years, Holling said 
he was first impressed with the 



impact a campus can have on a 
student while studying at the 
University of Florida. 

Commenting on his college 
days, he said, "the University of 
Florida has the most beautiful 
campus that I have ever seen. 
The pine and magnolia trees on 
the campus are unsurpassed 
anywhere in the country... when 
an educational environment is 
upgraded, students will respond 
positively." 

With this premise in mind, 
Holling and JC President-elect 
Dr. Ed Eissey have attempted to 
beautify the campus to a point 
that it will be recognized 
statewide. 

Plans for the future include 
upgrading the new Glades 
campus. The basic format for 
the layout has been decided 
and, with the cooperation of 
Glades Correctional Insitution, a 
work force has been assembled 
to aid the school. 

The only flaw in the program 
presently is the unavailability of 
more trees. Holling is currently 
trying to find someone willing to 
donate the needed trees. 



AN EXAMPLE OF the zany antics that took place at the last week's PTK gong show. Pictured L-r, this 
years winners Bobby Amor, Greg Kuarty, Tom Thomas and Ross Thomas of "The Unknown Feet 
Bluesband". 



"The Unknown Feet Blues- 
band " singing their hit, "We'll 
Do Anything to Win , " did just 
that when they tied for first 
place with two professional 
magicians at the Second Annual 
PTK Gong Show Jan. 29. 

Applause by a near capacity 
crowd in. the JC auditorium 
decided the tie between the two 
magicians Donna Evans and 
Mark Blount and the colorful 
"Feet." 

Members of the mock "punk 



rock" band included Ross 
Thomas, lead singer and winner 
of last year's show; Tom 
Thomas, bass guitarist; Greg 
Kurty, guitarist and Bobby 
Amor, motorcyclist. 

Their zany performance 
consisted of singer Thomas 
stomping on an empty box of 
girl scout cookies, pouring jam 
on his best pair of bedraggled 
old rags, playing the harmonica 
and singing while Amor, clad in 
a pink dress, black boots and 



long haired wig, drove around 
the stage on a brightly colored 
motorcycle. 

Digna Casas, PTK historian, 
said, "They didn't audition like 
that, it was a complete surprise 
to all of us!" 

Audience member Abbey 
OdeneaF commented, "Their 
crazy act appealed to the 
audience more than the magic 
act did because it was for a 
laugh. That's what people go to 



Duncan book reviews 
carry on tradition 

Continuing a tradition which he has followed through the years, 
Communications Dept. Chairman Watson B. Duncan, III, will be 
carrying on a series of book review lectures through March. 

The lectures, which have become something of an institution in 
Palm Beach, are held every Wednesday afternoon at 3:30 p.m. at the 
First National Bank of Palm Beach. 

On Feb. 1, Duncan reviewed "Bel Ria" by Sheila Burnford. The 
first novel in fifteen years from the author of "The Incredible 
Journey". 

Corning up, on Feb. 8, he will review "All Things Wise and 
Beautiful" by James Herriot, the year's biggest best seller and still 
number one on the non-fiction lists. 

On Feb. 15, "Love Letters" by Lady Antonia Fraser, concerning 
the charming, funny, passionate and inspiring outpourings of the' 
worlds great lovers will be reviewed. 

On Feb. 22, acclaimed wit and satirical columnist Art Buchwalds 
"Down the Sine and Up the Potomac" will be discussed. 

The $2 donation fliked for at the door goes toward a scholarship for 
JC students.

i ech wtlogical age to that country 

Most of our ships can still go through 
she locks. The 13 supertankers that 
cannot go through are also too large to 
use our own largest ports. 

In the event of a NATO crisis, 60% of 
our Pacific fleet must pass through the 
canal to beef up the Atlantic defense. It 
would be folly to gamble oar country's 
very survival on the whims of a foreign 
dictatorship. We should not forget our 
own Pearl Harbor and the Cuban missile 
crisis. 

The documentary declaration of 
agreement signed last September is not 
part of either treaty. Even if it were, a 
treaty can be broken when it. becomes 
expedient. Without jurisdiction over the 
zone, we cannot be certain of anything. 

Our first treaty will promise a large 
payment to that country for us to 
relinquish control to Panama, to furnish 
continued even more generous foreign 
aid and worst of all, a promise not to build 
another canal without approval from that 
country. Fantastic? What do we get for all 
this? 

We will be "allowed" to defend that 
country if they request help, to use the 
canal for our shipping, and to close down 
ten of our 14 military bases in the Canal 
Zone. IThe expedited passage is 
discussed in the agreement document, 
with no clarification of the actual intent 
except we will be dispatched officially 
through there.] 

There are other alternatives besides 
status quo. We could work out changes in 
the new treaties, with more equitable 
provisions for American security. We 
should not be asked to give up everything 
we built there, and pay for the privilege 
of leaving, merely because that country 
demands it. 

Or, we could propose further expansion 
and development of the zone on a joint or 
even international basis. We (through our 
work on the canal made the country of 
Panama, not the reverse.) Without us, it 
would still be the malaria-ridden, 
swampish nightmare it once was. 

Another alternative would be to 
negotiate with another country for a new 
canal. When the new one is completed, 
simply withdraw from the old canal. 
Certainly we should not allow ourselves 
t<i get in a position we cannot seek 
alternative solutions. 

We do not need to jump because a 
"tnttuse" roars. 



A panel of scholars speculated on the 
future, on behalf of Congress' Joint 
Economic Committee. Findings were 
based on hearings and 41 research 
documents. 

Contrary to what we may expect, these 
scholars concluded there will be no 
shortage of raw materials. Among 
reasons given were that cars were going 
to be smaller and there would be fewer 
homes built in the near future. 

Other surprising statements included a 
prediction of a labor scarcity by 1990, a 
drop in college attendance and a better 
quality of life for the middle class, in spite 
of an economic slow-down . 

Unemployment, they concluded, 
should gradually decrease. In the next 
ten years or so, a tight labor market will 
develop. This will prove advantageous for 
the underprivileged. 

The rise in college attendance during 
the last decade could lead to some 
uneremployment of the college educated. 
With increasing numbers of graduates, a 



degree will lose some of its value. This 
will affect a decline in college attendance. 
As this occurs, a general educational 
program will become more desirable than 
the highly specialized programs we now 
maintain. 

There will be fewer young people, 
meaning an older population. In turn, this 
will mean less migration to the South and 
West, particularly from the Northeast. 



With such trends anticipated, the next 
step will be to revise college offerings for 
the changing populations. There should 
be more general interest and 
self-enrichment classes and an expansion 
of the fine arts program. Educational 
needs of an older population will not be 
the same as in a predominantly youthful 
society. 

If we are wise, we will heed the 
warnings of these scholars and be flexible 
enough to meet these new challenges. A 
degree as a goal will not be nearly as 
important as growth in mental stature. 



Government is greatest polluter 



As a protector for our environment, the 
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency 
(EPA) has begun major crackdowns 
against the nation's major polluters. 

Ironically, its first major action was 
brought against federal installations at 17 
government facilities in the midwest. 
Several are military bases. 

This action provides a 20-day period to 
respond and/or comply. If they do not 
respond or submit suitable comliance 
schedules within that time period, they 
will be subject to fines and contempt 
findings. 



These are major violators, according to 
EPA spokesman. 

Again, our government operates 
outside the limits and laws set for private 
enterprise. Instead of compliance with 
protection of the environment guidelines, 
they exempt themselves. Hopefully, the 
government will not resort to argument 
and appeals to delay rectifying a 
hazardous and deplorable situation. 

We are in peculiar situation of the 
govenment protecting us from itself, as it 
becomes both a violator and an enforcer

Canal pact offers 
diplomatic strength 



The treaties presently before Congress concerning the Panama 
Canal offer the U.S. a chance to increase our diplomatic allies through 
peaceful, non-violent actions. 

For a country such as ours, which has for so long depended on 
aggressive military action to maintain favor among the weaker 
nations, this change of tactics represents much more than an isolated 
policy shift. 

Americn legislators are finally realizing that our might as a nation 
stems not from our ability to frighten developing countries into 
disgruntled submission, but rather from our position as the controller 
of the most advanced technologies in the world. 

The Panama Canal, old as it is, stands as a symbol of that 
technology. It's practical importance as a passage for our larger ships 
is limited. Overland and airborne transport have to a big extent 
bypassed the original purpose of the canal as a San Francisco-to-New 
York shortcut, so that the return of locks back to the Panamanians has 
a reduced economic impact on the United States shipping industry. 

Panama, on the other hand, is a strategically located, quickly 
developing country. In the foreseeable future, this tiny stretch of 
land, with its close proximity to the huge natural resources of South 
America, will in all probability become a military force to be reckoned - 
with. The rapid proliferation of nuclear weapons among the third 
world countries makes this assumption all the more likely. 

When this happens, our relationship with the people of Panama 
will be of tantamount performance. If our political stance remains 
that of a master to his servant, then we will doubtless pay with our 
future international security. However, if we use this chance to 
befriend a country that is still in the midst of growing pains; still 
accessible to the give and take of friendly negotiations, then this 
"giveaway." of the Panama Canal may be the cheapest foreign aid we 
eve"r dispensed. • -. - ■ ■■ > ■ 

SG leads student 
to self sufficiency 



After a full term of futility, SG 
seems to finally be getting up 
enough momentum to affect 
some changes on the JC 
campus. 

Starting with such trivial 
matters as the naming of JC's 
streets and byways, it looks now 
as if students here will finally 
get the game room that can turn 
the campus into more than just a 
place to study. This is a big step 
Boards promoting solidarity in 
the student body. 

Now a move is before the 
senate that would amend the SG 
constitution to establish a 



Student Court responsible for 
the intrepetation of the 
constitution and the adminis- 
tration of those interpretations. 

This would allow much more 
freedom of the student body in 
the handling of our own affairs. 

What is needed now is for the 
administrators of, this campus to 
end their iskepticlsm of the ability 
of the students to handle 
student matters. 

With their trust, and the 
leadership of the those capable 
elements surfacing in the SG> 
JC's student body can function 
with the autonomy and strength 
necessary for a well run college.

Johnny's sister Jane can't hear 



ByBillFlory 
Guest Columnist 

I finally received my college degree! My name is 
Jane. You probably know my brother — his name 
isJohnny.They used to say, "Johnny can't read." 
They didn't know that Jane couldn't hear. 

I've always had a problem — people said, "Jane 
is a daydreamer. She seldom pays attention; she 
misses homework assignments. Jane just doesn't 
listen." 

1 never really knew for sure what people were 
saying. I sometimes wondered why the others in 
class seemed so much smarter. How did they know 
what was wanted? How could they understand 
Miss Trozier, the teacher, when I couldn't? 

I was eleven years old before I found out I wasn't 
slow — eleven long and frustrating years before I 
discovered that what I heard was different from the 
things that others heard. I had a hearing problem 
and didn't know it. Looking back, it seems 
impossible that somehow - someone would have 
come to realize — how can a person, myself 
included, not know nor even suspect that what I 
have heard was that different from what others 
heard? 

From that turning point in my life - I started 
paying attention to little signs - 1 became aware of 
signals that were overlooked before. I began to 
lean on a conscious level those aspects of body 
language that help convey messages. I started to 
"listen" with my eyes — tension in a speaker's 
throat told me the different between voiced and 
unvoiced consonants. Still unable to "hear" the 
words - 1 began concentrating on ideas. 



During those early years - how I suffered 
humiliations! How often teachers, peers, and 
parents looked perplexed when I answered a 
question with an inappropriate response. I 
developed a defense - a way of coping - 1 figured 
the way to get along with others was to smile - to 
nod my head - to pretend that I understood- to 
speak as little as possible. 

Exams were not easy, but I could guess at 
. enough answers to pass - as long as I didn't talk. I 
had learned to keep my mouth shut. 1 did get me 
Associate of Arts Degree at the Community 
College - 1 had the stamp of approval! But what a 
surprise 1 was in for when I applied for a job. 
Socially, I knew tha handicaps; however, : I felt 
confident when it came to employment, After all 
didn't the "college" say I was ready? 

I had heard "priority" and "important" and 
"the basics". I had read of "accountability" in 
education; however, the meanings were different 
in the outside world. 



I spent two years of my life - sweat and tears - 
preparing for life... a job... a vocation... a way to 
support myself... a way to join society as a college 
graduate, and I had succeeded. 

I still hadn't learned that oral communication 
was that important in the real world. (Where the 
teacher did not exist nor do all the talking) I 
thought I had beaten the system - 1 had a college 
degree! 

However, when I entered the insurance office for 
my first interview...

Atomic rebuttal, state-pen pal 



Dear Editor: 

The January 23 issue of the 
Beachcomber contains an edit- 
orial entitled "Yes of No"? The 
writer of the editorial seems 
dissapointed that a "spirited 
panel discussion" or a "lively 
pro-con debate between a pair ■ 
of experts on nuclear power" 
did not take place. All the writer 
got by attending, it is claimed, 
was a "one sided view of the 
subject" and a "tired old film." 
For your information, the "tired 
old film" was produced in 1977! . 
A little investigative work on 
your part would have informed 
you of this fact. Good 
journalistic practice used to 
emphasize "getting the facts 
straight". 

If you wanted a debate, why 



didn't you'inquire, request, or 
arrange a debate when you 
learned, weeks earlier, that the 
speaker, was scheduled to 
appear? As to the one-sided 
view, and the alleged lack of 
spirited discussion, may I 
suggest the most likely reason is 
that knowledgeble, responsible 
citizens have identified nuclear 
power as the safest reliable, 
clean, economical, readily 
available energy option avail- 
able to the United States for the 
next 50 years, at least. 

I have no special fondness of 
FPL but this does not preclude 
my sharing their enthusiasm, 
based on the fact and reason, for 
the Nuclear Fuel Cycle. The FPL 
speaker, although obviously 
technically weak, none-the-less 



made an honest attempt to 
answer all questions fairly and 
openly. I believe your criticisms 
of this presentation are 
unjustified, and the reference to 
preferring "Tom and Jerry 
Cartoons" reveals a general 
lack of maturity on the part of 
the writers. 

Very truly yours, 
James C. McCue 
Instructor, Physics 
Dear Editor: 

1 am a prisoner serving time 
on a small conviction, but a stiff 
sentence. I would appreciate 
any letters from anyone who 
would like to establish a pen pal 
relationship.

The speakers were able to find the rational and irrational in just about 
any work of literature or film," said Turk. 

Films shown at the conference also ran the gamut from one of the 
first silent movies. "The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari", to the recent 
Truffaut production, "The Story of Adele H.", which includes 
fenglish subtitles from the French original. 

"This conference afforded us the chance to see some films that we 
can't usually find at community theatres as well as to hear speakers 
who had extremely well thought out presentations. " 

Turk already has plans to attend next years conference; the theme 
of which, Ideas of Order in Literature and Film, fits perfectly with her 
long time desire to compare the structural development of "A 
Passage to India" to the traditional three part structure of a classical 
symphony. w 

The Comparative Literature Conference was hosted by Florida 
State University and was held at the Tallahassee Hilton Jan. 26-8. 



Era of liners 
recollected 



Memorabilia recollecting an 
era when trans-atlantic luxury 
liners : were the rriaihstream of 
oceanic travel are being shown 
in the second floor library 
display case through Feb. 28. 

Among the objects in the 
display, besides a tourist class 
menu from 1928, are shipping 
tags and a model of the 
Mauritania sister ship of the 
Lusitania, which sunk during 
World War I, and won acclaim 
for it s high speeds. 

Also shown are the ship plans 
for two well-known liners of the 
period, the R.M.S. Queen 
Elizabeth and the Bremen, 
stationary, matches, ashtrays, 
brochures, glassware, a place 
setting from an Italian ship and 
cutlery from the Bremen. 

Presently, only one trans-at- 
lantic ship remains, the R.M.S. 
Queen Elizabeth II, whose 
one-way fare in the cheapest 
cabin is $850. 

All of the objects displayed 
are from the collection of 
Boynton resident Alfred Binner, 
a member of the World Ship 
Society of New York, who began 
his hobby by initially collecting 
travel brochures and finally 
specializing in items relating to 
the ships themselves. 

A silver cup and a watercolor 
done by Binner is also featured 
in addition to several other 
objects. 

Also currently on display on 
campus in the Humanities 
building gallery js a collection of 
works done in various mediums 
by artist James Cooper. The 
works are mainly, sketchings and 
paintings. 

All JC displays are open to 
the public Monday through 
Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 9 
p.m. and on Fridays from 7:30 
a.m.to4p.m.

PBJC ASSEMBLY— The Descendants of Mike and Phoebe are coming to the Palm Beach Junior College 
Gymnasium, Monday, Feb. 13 from 11 a.m. to noon. This talented musical group of two brothers and two 
sisters will perform jazz, folk and spirituals as well as some drama. The group selected their name to 
honor their maternal slave ancestors, who held their family together under difficult odds. The assembly is 
open to the public, and tickets wilj be available at the door of the day of the performance for a donation of 
S3 for adults and $1 for children. 

New senators fill openings 



To fill a void left by former SG 
member's, three new senators 
have been elected by a vote of 
the senate body. 

Sworn in by Senate President 
Ronald Pugh were: Andrea 
Black, Shawn Mullinix and 
Stewart Williams, bringing the 
number of senators that have 
been appointed this term to five. 

Just one more senatorial slot 
remains and is expected to be 
filled Wednesday, bringing the 
total number to 24. 

Replacing Deatrice Patterson 
as senate clerk is Andrea Black. 
Ed Waldron, due to his work 
load, retained ' his post as 
asistant clerk. 

opening remains for the 
secretary of productions. Pres- 
ident Sharon Christenbury is 



expected to appoint someone to 
fill the post. 

Presently under study by the 
Constitutional Revisions Com- 
mittee is the drafting of a new 
constitution. 

Senatof Jane Armstrong, who 
heads the committee, said, 
"There are too many flaws in 
the constitution. New amend- 
ments to the present charter are 
unamendable because a 2/3 
majority vote of the student 
body is needed and voter 
turnouts are atiout five 
percent." 

Armstrong went on to explain 
that there are many clauses in 
the articles that are not enforced 
such as Articles II and IV,* 
involving secretarial duties and 
the operation of a judicial board, 
respectively. 



Senator Patrick Bagley said, 
"This constitution allows too 
many loopholes and people just 
skate along, and they don't 
handle their job properly." 

Approved was a motion in the 
senate to take the complaints to 
the executive board. If a new 
constitution is drafted it will 
have to be approved by the 
Board of Trustees; 

Also under study by the 
committee is the creation of a 
judicial board, provided for by 
Article IV. 

If a judiciary is created it 
would have the function of 
interpreting the constitution and 
would provide a check on other 
branches. In addition it could be 
authorized to serve as a student 
court for such matters as 

continued page 8 



Even though not held for the purpose of additional bargaining or 
tor mediation the number of areas of disagreement melted down 
from 13 to seven during the proceedings. 

Issues that one way or another were resolved include temporary 
duly elsewhere, travel expenses, union duties during campus hours 
and faculty ownership of work products. 

Disagreement still remains over salary demands for coaching and 
otherco-curricular duties aiid the right for teachers to choose either 
monetary compensation or time off from regular, duties. 

Also, differences over length of contracts, a no strike or picket 
clause, information disclosure and the desire of instructors to return 
to an "Index" pay scale rather than one based on "academic rank", 
present obstacles. 

With the index system, each year an instructor gets an automatic 
wage increase. Also for each additional degree a teacher achieves, a 
commensurate increase results. 

According to Manor, the two major weaknesses of this system are 
that advancement occurs regardless of ability, and that as long as an 
instructor gets a certifiable degree, "the pay increase is automatic." 

Defending the Academic rank system. Manor said instructors 
"should be stimulated to do a little better job this year than last, but 
under this (index) system unless he's bad enough to fire he goes up 
until he goes to the top." 

Under the academic system, instructors are paid according to both 
class room experience and for additional courses they have taken — 
as long as they are related to their Field. The guidelines are spelled 
out and rankings coincide with them. 

Rankings under this system consist of Instructor, Senior Instructor, 
Assistant Professor, Associate Professor and Professor. 

One of two major complaints that the union has with this system is 
that strict quotas, are in effect and only so many of each rank are 
allowed.'The lower the rank the higher the quota, and vice versa. 

The second complaint with this system is that qualification 
requirements increased so radically during the transition from Index 
to Academic Ranking, that Marsteller said they could almost be 
labeled "unrealistic'" for the short duration which the change took 
place. 

While quotas ourrently have not been met, they eventually will be, 
and qualified instructors will have to wait for a vacancy to open before 
they can fill the position. 

While the actual hearings have ended, they do not officially 
conclude until Special Master Jerome Greene obtains transcripts of 
the proceedings. 

After the official ending, Greene will give his recommendations; i'.' 
no solution is found, the two units will negotiate further. If ar: 
impasse continues then the BOT will make the ultimate decision. 



Lack of participants 
causes cancellation 



The "Five Flags" speech 
tournament at Pensacola, which 
JC Forensic team members had 
hoped to compete in, was 
cancelled. 

Slated for Jan. 27-28, the 
event was to be sponsored by 
the University of West Florida. 

In a telephone call to 
Forensics Advisor John Conn- 
olly on Jan. 25, the day before 
departure, assistant tournament 
director Lee Schoeni told 



Show 

from page one 

a gong show for," 

Gong show "Judges Dean 
Moss, John Anderson and 
Dusty Rhodes gonged only five 
out of 14 acts. 

Several acts that were not 
gonged and received high 
scores include Krista Carol 
singing "Punkies Dilemma" 
and ' Triska Bell singing 
"Amazing Grace". 

Fred Vizoso and his singing 
dog, Rascal, did not'get gonged 
but they didn't score either. 
Apparently, Rascal got stage 
fright and refused to sing. 

The $50 prize went to the 
"Unknown Feet Bluesband" as 
well as a trophy donated by the 
baseball team. 



Connolly that because of not 
enough college entries the 
competition was cancelled. 

Commenting on the invalida- 
tion,. Connolly said, "This was 
the first time I had a tournament 
cancelled." 

Connolly theorizes that a 
more potent contest at Auburn, 
• Ala. being held at almost the 
same time as Five Flags event 
could have been why so few 
schools entered the Pensacola 
tourney. He also pointed out 
that the cold weather could have 
been a factor. 

Although Schoeni had made 
arrangements for the members 
to participate in Auburn's, that 
invitation could not be met. This 
was because of doubling the 
cost of car rental and problems 
of hotel accommodations. 

"The paperwork was all set 
for Pensacola and I didn't have 
time to make adjustments," 
said Connolly. 

The contest, which was to 
feature colleges as. far away as 
Texas and Michigan, was to 
have had °oeech categories in 
poetry w.- pretation, mixed 
interpretation, persuasion, ex- 
temporaneous speaking, after- 
dinner speaking and rhetorical 
criticism. 

Last year JC was the only 
school in the' state to have 
finalist in every category.

By Gunda Caldwell 
Editorial Assistant 

Men have accepted and are 
using cosmetics, perfume, hair 
spray and necklaces. And they 
also wear pantyhose. The secret 
is out. 

English men discovered the 
advantages of pantyhose long 
before the American male. It 
took the New York Jets and 
bitter cold winter weather to 
break the story. 

In the past, thermal under- 
wear was worn for outdoor 
games during winter. This 
tended to add bulk (and weight), 
especially when the players 
started sweating. 

Jets coach WalteT Michaels 
admitted he had worn panty- 
hose as a coach when he issued 
an edict against thermal 
underwear for games. 

So it came to pass that the 
average Jet, 6-foot-2 and 235 
pounds, ended up in undergar- 
ments designed for the 
"full-figured" woman, sized 3X 
and 4X. in hues of french coffee, 
taupe and pecan beige. 

Quarterback Richard Todd 



was willing to be quoted, 

"I like them. They're warm 
and not as bulky as thermals. 
You have more freedom to 
move, more motion, you don't 
get cold on sidelines waiting to 
go in, and I will keep on wearing 
them in future games during the 
winter." 

When the news broke, some 
Jets were embarrassed, while 
others thought the whole matter 
was funny. 

Many feminine articles have 
gained unisex status during the 
last decade, just as male 
clothing styles have invaded 
female designs. Jeans are a 
classic example. 

Common sense, fortunately, 
often dictates the adaptations. 
Slacks have become universal in' 
favor for, women who have shed 
their pantyhose in favor of the 
ankle six, once a man style. 

And if you think that this is 
confusing, you're absolutely 
right. Fashions remain a 
hodge-podge, with, no discern- 
able trend. Athletes in panty 
hose complete the confusion. 





Kansas album tops Billboard charts 




"Kansas," "Song for America," "Masque," "Leftoverture" and 
the newest, "Point of Know Return," are among the top five albums 
released by Kansas. 

Though not as good as "Leftoverture," "Point of Know Return" is 
good enough to stand on its,own merit. 

"Point; of Know Return' ' has succeeded on many points ' 

The title song is somewhat of a hit and its other songs have better 
melody lines. 

The album has reached the top-10 on billboard's charts. 

However, one drawback the album has is that it has been an 
annoying characteristic of Kansas' recording careen The drawback is 
their highly intellectual, yet slightly absurd lyrics. 

"Point of Know Return" is nowhere near the brilliance and 
complexity of Kansas' previous albums. 

The album is an experiment in commercially successful progressive 
hard rock, whereas earlier albums relied heavily on radical rhythm 
changes and complex instrumentation arrangements for musical 
effects. 

"Point of Know Return" opens with the title cut. The sing-a-long 
melody has made it quite successful on the AM and FM top 40 stations 

The title cut is quite a relief to the disco and Debbie Boone schmaltzy 
singles charts are composed of. 

"Paradox," second in line, is a fast moving rocker that once again 
incorporates a catchy melody within a basically hard-rock song. 



A brief instrumental, "The Spider," which sounds like , mintage 
Emerson, Lake and Palmer, blends right into another great cut, 
"Portrait." This shows that Kansas can rock and roll with the best of 
them. 

Side one closes with the highly dramatic, "Closet Chronicles"- a 
song that surveys many magds and facets of Kansas 'and their music. 

Fast and. furious. Lightning's Hand" kicks off side two with a crack 
of thunder and feveredorgan work. The song also features some tasty 
dual guitar leads by Kerry Livgren and Rick Williams. 

Following this is the beautiful, "'Dust in The Wind" that could win 
this year's "Best-mellow-song-by-a-hard-rock-band" award. 

With Steve Walsh and Robbie Steihhardt on vocals and Williams on 
acoustic guitar, "Dust in The Wind" provides calm contrast to the 
album. 

Kansas presents their own brand of "Kansas Funk" with "Sparks of 
the Tempest." ThJF, features a searing guitar solo by Williams and 
ends with old heavy ro& and roil guitar chords by way of Livgren- 

"Nobody's Home," which could be theme music for a soap opera, 
precedes the last cut, "Hopeless Human. ' ' 

"Hopelessly Human" is very much like "Closet Chronicles" in that 
it displays many aspects of the groups countless talents. It ends on 
reslendent sounds of tubular bells. 

Kansas' next album will hopefully be a fusion of their earlier and 
most recent styles with results of being a totally satisfying Kansas 
experience. 



Dreams inspire art 
Ambition adds style 

By Gunda Caldwell 
Editorial Assistant 

David William Ginsburg, artist, is an inspiring example of how far 
one can go with diligence and dedication to a dream. 

You can see his silver and red car with an ARTIST-3 tag parked at 
his favorite places — JC, Norton Art Gallery and on Worth Avenue, 
Palm Beach. 

He attracts personal attention by his air of quiet confidence and a 
Hair for' modern style of clothes. Ginsburg's silvery hair and 
well-shaped beard complete the picture of a mature, dignified, well 
poised and successful man. 

Maezie Murphy Kline, model agency owner, spotted him on Worth 
Avenue and immediately offered a job as a model. More offers 
followed. He has just completed a Water Glade commercial for TV. 

Art has played a strong, lifetime role in his dreams. As a son of a 
New York City artist, his life, ambition was to pursue an art career. 

Instead, he became an architectural draftsman. This provided the 
means for him to continue painting and to lay the groundwork for his 
future. 

On moving to Florida, he decided to fulfill his lifelong dream of 
becoming a fulltime artist. His success can be measured by his 
artistic achievements. 

His membership's in art groups include the International Society of 
Arts in New York and National Slide Registration of American Artists 
in Washington, D.C., as well as two area artists guilds. 

His landscapes are stripped of clutter. The viewer sees a bold, 
harmonious wedding of line and color. Lines form the subject and 
colors become eloquent^ adjectives. 

The finished product is comfortable to look at and easy to live with, 
a happy blending of old and new. 

Channel Two will hold an art auction in February to raise funds for 
their operations. Ginsburghasbeen chosen as a contributor. A patron 
has commissioned him for the project.

Valentines never reach valentine 



Valentines Day is a time for 
sharing happiness, glee and 
tenderness for most people. 
Laura is an exception. 

Laura never got a valentine. 

Not to say that she is 
unattractive. In fact, • every 
construction site she ever 
passed was declared a national 
bird sanctuary'. , 

She just seems to be the 
victim of many bad circum- 
stances. 

One of her courtiers was in 



jail when the big day came so 
Laura baked him a heart-shaped 
cake • complete with the 
proverbial file. 

All she got from' him was a 
dental bill. , 

Another suitor left a large box 
of chocolate candy on her 
doorstep in a shy gesture . of 
romance. She came home three , 
days later to an ant-infested pile 
of goo. 

On yet another occasion, her 



male friend took her out to 
dinner at an exclusive restaur- 
ant. They wined and dined on' 
the best of everything. Seven 
full courses passed over the 
table, followed quickly .by the 
check. 

At this time Mr. "Don't 
worry, I'll take care of every 
little thing" had forgotten one 
little thing — his wallet — and 
the two were faced with the task 
of washing the best of 



everything. 

When she lived in a rural 
neighborhood, her young coun- 
try gentleman sent her a dozen 
prize roses. The arrangement 
was thrown A from the horse- 
drawn delivery wagon and 
consumed by the chief form of 
transportation. 

So Valentine's Day comes 
rolling around again and Laura 
is deep in contemplation. What 
could happen next?

By Sonny Nyman 

"So, you're a big game 
hunter. ..and you're tired of the 
regular big game. And small 
game just isn't as challenging as 
it used to be, eh? 

Take heart, Bunky, there's 
something to train your eye and 
rack your brain. 

While Shakespeare had little 
to do with the naming, 
Ul HELLO has emerged on the 
game scene to compete with 
other strategy games of the 
same caliber. 

In effort to keep up with the 
popularity of checkers, chess 
and backgammon, the makers of 
OTHELLO decided to combine 
all three. 

It starts out with 64 
checker-like squares upon which 
is to be lain 64 backgammon- 
t.vpe chips, black and white on 
either side, added to which is a 
touch ofchess-like strategy that 
bends the mind and frays the 
nerves of every player. 



rules. The' game boasts the 
slogan, "A minute to learn... a 
lifetime to master." 

The game begins with each 
player having 32 chips. Two of 
each color are set diagonally in 
the four middle squares. 



From then on, you and your 
opponent set up tactics to 
outflank each other. Whoever 
has the majority of chips in his 
color when all 64 squares are 
filled, wins. 

"Outflanking" as OTHEL- 
LO'S rules tell, means to "place 
a disc so that your opponent's 
row (or rows) of discs is 
bordered at each end by a disc 
of your color." The chips- within 
them are flipped to your color. 

At first sight of the game, it 
could be quickly judged as 
another one of those infantile 
games which seem to be made 
for minus 10 I.Q. r as a 
penultimate time squanderer. 



You needn't worry about the Fortunately, that judgement 




is wrong. Good strategy games 
are few and far between . 

The game has, along with its 
minute-to-learn rules, lifetime- 
to-master tactics that can drive 
you up a vaseline wall. If you 
lack a clever eye, you can miss 
that one shot play that can make 
or break your chance of 
winning. 

In every strategy game there 
is a key secret to success. 
OTHELLO is no exception. 
However, that key is harder to 
get at because it's in a corner. 

If a player can get his chip 
into the corner, he has a better 
chance of winning. From that 
point, he can outflank his 
opponent's chips in all three 
directions; horizontally, vertic- 
ally and diagonally. 

But it's not an open-shut case 
for you. If you use your old 
noggin, you can block or "build 
up a solid defense against it." 
Solid defenses are also hard to 
come by, but anything's 



possible. 

An average game of OTHEL- 
LO takes an hour or a little 
more. For hard-nosed strate- 
gists, it could carry on for a 
couple hours. 

That is perhaps why, on the 
game's box, it suggests that you 
eat and sleep between games. . 
Any OTHELLO expert will 
admit that it will take a lot out of 
you. 

Average price for Othello, 
compared to a Backgammon set 
is meager. 

Prices vary with the store, but 
it runs between $6 to $10 for the 
10-inch set and around $15 for 
the original 12-inch board. 

If you dig into OTHELLO as 
fast as many people have, your 
nerves, too,, will be sitting on a 
pincushion, but suspense and 
pressure to use your head for a 
change is a good feeling. 

Perhaps it could be true. Old 
strategists never die, they just 
flip their chips. 



Stage is lit for plays 

By Sonny Nyman 

Mel Brooks and Shakespeare have something in common. 

Their plays, among five others, are to be presented at the Fourth 
Annual High School Drama Festival sponsored by the drama 
department. 

With seven area high schools preregistered for the all-day festival, 
it promises to be fast-paced and full of young talent, says speech 
teacher, Sunny Meyer.

Department Chairman, each school is to present a one-act play before 
judge, Phyllis Ullivalli a Broward Community College drama teacher. 

Also judging are Duncan and Meyer, and Frank Leahy, speech 
teacher. Critiques are to be made after each presentation. 

Tabulations made after all plays are presented will determine the 
best of the seven. 

Participating are:Forest Hill, Glades Central, Jupiter, Lake Worth, 
North Shore, Palm Beach Gardens and Suncoast high schools. . 

Plays to be presented are, "Thankful Heart," Glad Central; "Not 
Tonight," Jupiter; "I Rise In Flame Cried The Phoenix," Lake 
Worth; "Louder, I Can't Hear You," PB Gardens and two unnamed

Pacers holding own 



The Pacers led by Dirk Jamison's 17 points 
upped their season record to 9-9 by beating 
Broward 99-84. The win gave the Pacers a 4-4 
record in Division 4 play. 

The game was a rugged contest which saw 
Broward's Jerry MacDoo foul out, while Pacer Bill 
Buchanan drew a technical foul. Coach Joe 
Ceravelo attributes his teams winning in recent 
games to the Pacers ability to pull together as a 
team. 

When asked how he felt about the game, 
Ceravelo was concerned that his players might get 
upset and get into foul trouble which is something 
he feels that takes away from the players. It is hard 
to build up the momentum they would need for 
assurance, since they do not have the real power 
performer. His worries were unnecessary though 
as the Pacers won big. 

The Pacers then lost a tough game to the 



Dade-South Jaguars 87-69 on Feb. 1. The Pacers 
dropped their records to 9-10 overall and 4-5 in the 
Division. 

The Jaguars' Leon Manning led all scorers with 
23 points, while Sam Weathersbee led the Pacers 
with 18 and Mike Bennett added 16. Mistakes hurt 
the Pacers chances as they looked like they were 
coming back several times. 

The Jaguars had two former all area players on 
their squad, Benny Goldwire played at Suncoast 
and Ron Taylor was a member of the Lake Worth 
Trojans. 

In reference to the ineligibility ruling that has 
plagued the Pacers this year Ceravelo stated that 
"An athlete must attend class regularly and carry 
up to 10 hours while maintaining a 1.5 grade point 
average. ' ' This is the ruling that has hit the Pacers 
hard and has left them hurting in the size 
department. 



Violence in sports reality now 



By Sherman Donnelly 
Co-Editor Sports 

Recently, many American 
sports have come under fire for 
growing player and fan unrest. 
Traditionally non-violent sports 
have come into national focus 
showing that they have evolved 
into social, economic, and even 
political paradoxes.

Baseball Pacers sound 
as regular season begins 



The baseball team finished up 
the Winter exhibition season 
with a victory over the Baseball 
School of Boca Raton. The 
victory gave the Pacers a 5-2 
record. . 

Bob Garris and Dan Weppner 
teamed up to hold the cubs to 
just one run on five hits while 
the Pacers were able to score 
three runs in the third to take 
the game 3-1. 

In the Pacers half of the third 
Keith Parenteau started things 
off when he reached first on a 
passed ball on a third strike. 
Three straight singles by Tom 
Howser, Ed Walker and Craig 
Gero scored three runs and 
provided JC with all the runs 
they needed. 

Garris pitched the first five 
innings and gave up just two 
hits, a walk and the one run. 
Weppner pitched the final four 
innings and shut the Cubs out 
on three hits while striking out 
nine. 

The Pacers start the regular 
season February 10 against 
Biscayne College at the 
Municipal Stadium. 

Coach Dusty Rhodes said 
"We have a lot of guys with the 
flue and some sore arms so we 
are just trying to heal up for 
Biscayne. They are pretty 
tough." 

On February 12 the Pacers 
host Florida Southern College 



also at the stadium. The first 
conference game will be 
February 18 at the stadium. 

All games at the stadium will 
be S1.50 for adults and Sl.OOfor 
students. The Universitv of 



Miami will be in town February 
13 for a 7:30 game at the 
stadium. Miami, which is 
usually an NCAA contender, 
should give the Pacers a good 
contest 




Kareem Abdul-Jabbar slugged 
Indiana Pacer rookie Ken 
Benson after Benson intimida- 
ted Jabbar. Both sustained 
injuries and Jabbar was later. 
fined $5,000. In December, Lake 
Kermit Washington sucker- 
punched Houston forward Rudy 
Tomjanovich into the hospital in 
the most publicized act of 
violence yet this season. 
. Commissioner , Larry O'Brien 
fined him a record $10,000 and 
later he was traded to Boston. 

Though there are isolated 
incidents of violence in most pro 
sports, the press and T.V. 
coverage has been riding the 
crest of a wave that may leave 
someone beached. 

In pro baseball the argument 
is similar to pro football in that 
'instant-replays' from T.V. may 
someday be needed to accomo- 
date a more refined sport the 
fans could demand. In pro 
basketball and football, swifter 
and wiser referees are needed to 
keep up with anxious millions 
carefully watching on T.V. . Ball 
players generally, have gotten 
bigger, faster, and smarter; but 
the Commissioners are turning 
more stubborn and bureaucratic 
to keep an even balance 
between the fans and major- 
networks. 

When Curt Flood challenged 
his and pro baseball's rights in 
1968, he paved the way for 



today's 'free-agents' and estab- 
lished a relationship between 
the Players Association and the 
team owners. Now Baseball 
Commissioner Bowie Kuhn is 
being challenged by irate 
owners over his implied powers 
and as he puts it, what's "in the 
best interest of baseball." 

Since the ABA merged with 
the NBA, Commissioner O'Bri- 
en . killed any hopes' of an 
inter-league rivaly that the 
AFL-NFL boast of since 1967. 
Critics hope that when the NBA 
expands its problems will not 
increase proportionately. If the 
young World Hockey Associa- 
tion merges with the prestigious 
NHL maybe they can learn 
something from the non-violent 
NBA. 

If the idea in major league 
sports is to beat the other 
person or team, who does the 
average fan support; the player 
who plays for his teamates, or 
one that puts out for the fan? 
Unfortunately, the bigger the 
sport and its city the more the 
average fan may begin to feel to 
insignificant. The commission- 
ers of football, baseball and 
basketball and the major 
network executives who oversee 
them, must now mold a 
successful evolution as long as 
the sports and their fans 
change.

John Anderson is optimistic about his team's chances. Before this 
year, he was an assistant under coach Bobbie Knowles. 

Anderson feels that he has a lot of talent this year and that his only 
problem is to get the girls together as a team. 

Anderson sees his style of coaching as a hard driving 
fundamentalist. He shows this by requiring his girls to be able to run 
the mile in eight minutes or less. He feels that speed and good 
offensive play backed by steady defense enables a team to win. 

His girls appear to have the quickness. They all ran the mile in 
seven minutes or less. They also lift weights and exercise for 
conditioning before practice. 

Coach Anderson has sixteen girls on this years squad.^ They are 
Laura Pierce, Linda Walker, Lynne Spruill, Joyce Richardson, 
Rhonda Stuart, Tama Zimmerman, Kim Clarke, Cathy Kelley, 
Melinda Toscano, Debra Rowell, Nadine Erb, all here on 
scholarships. The rest of the girls that make u the. team are Kathy 
Padgett, Kim Jones, ReMona Frates, Heidi Hipson and Karen 
Lawres. 

The Pacers open their season with a doubleheader against Broward 
North at home on March 6 at 2 p.m. 

The softball team is sponsoring a bar-b-que with the Kiwanis Club 
on March 5 in order to raise funds.

Scheduling of Classes: 

The United Faculty believes that rannom scheduling and arbitrary assignment are detrimental to the effectiveness and morale of 

individual faculty members. Efforts must be made to adjust faculty schedules to accomodate personal committments as well as 

professional committments. Solutions can be found to correct inequities not only in evening and satellite assignments but also 
the inequities in lab and clinical assignments. 

Overload: 

The United Faculty believes that classes in a given discipline should be offered as overloads to full-time faculty members in that 
discipline before any part-time instructors are employed. ; 

The United Faculty believes that overload should be paid commensurate with the faculty member's salary. All overloads should 
be compensated at the rate of time-and-a-half and salaries for same paid once a month. 

£ Salary Index: 

The United Faculty believes that the salary index is incentive for professional improvement 
and better performance of instructional duties. The United Faculty will continue to fight 
against management's unilaterally imposed academic rank which is responsible for reduced 
income and elimination of incentive. 

# Seniority: 

The United Faculty believes that those who have demonstrated satisfactory performance 
for the greatest period of time are entitled to considerations which should be negotiated. 
Faculty members according to seniority should have a choice in such matters of office 
space, assignment of classes, work schedules, inter-campus transfer, in short, all matters 
relating to working conditions. 

Q Sick Leave Bank: ■ ■ 

The United Faculty believes that the establishment of a sick leave bank is a human 
means of protecting the well being of employees. A sick leave bank enables new em- 
ployees and employees who have exhauted their sick leave benifits to borrow days 
with pay without depending upon the benevolence of the employer. The United . 
Faculty regards the establishment of a sick leave bank to be of utmost importance. 

Q Transfers: 

The United Faculty believes that inter-Campus and inter-department transfers should 
occur only with the permission of the individual faculty member. Administrative har- 
assment, intimidation, and/or coersion shall be a grievable offense. 



Unique Working Conditions: 

The United Faculty appreciates the unique working conditions arid job re- 
quirements of teaching nurses, teaching dental hygienists, conselors, librarians, 
and various kinds of coaches {drama, forensics, music, athletics}.. The United 
Faculty appreciates the important role that they play in the delivery of spec- 
ialized educational offerings" to the students. The United Faculty knows that 
they have problems in situations which require special attention and believes ' 
that they should receive special attention. 

Job Security: : 

The United Faculty believes that faculty members have a right to expect to 

continue in their jobs unless radical demographic changes occur. 

Professionalism: 

Traditionally, a professional has been defined as one who (1) has special- 
ized knowledge aquired in advanced training and who (2) "controls his or her 
her conditions of employment, including salary. It is clear that Palm Beach 
Junior College faculty is professional as far as criterion No. 1 is concerned. 
it is equally clear that Palm Beach Junior College faculty, is not professional 
in terms of criterion No. 2. And it will not be professional without a union 
to negotiate the conditions of employment and salary. Therefore, it is 
through unionization that we attain full professional status. Far from union- 
ization being the opposite of professional ism, it is a necessary condition for it.

Faculty votes to keep union 



By Eden White 
News Editor 



Following a move to remove the United Faculty (UF) as its official 
representative, the .JC faculty voted to retain the union as the 
bargaining unit in a decertification election Feb. 17. 

Like the election resulting in the unions certification in September, 
1975, it was supervised by the Public Employees Relations 
Commission (PERC). 

The election was brought about by a confidential petition signed by 
about 30 percent of the faculty who said they did not wish to be 
represented by the union. 



Voting took place on all four campuses and results were in later the 
same day. 

Despite two years of collective bargaining, the faculty and the 
administration have not agreed to a contract, resulting in the recent 
discontent with the union. 

Currently, the faculty is awaiting the decision of a Special Master 
who will consider I he claims of both sides and offer compromise 
which if not agreeable to both sides will be subject to further 
negotiation. The proposal is expected in March. 

The UF lias set as their goals the solving of disagreements over 
contract lengths, salary demands for coaching and advising, methods 
of meeting the rising cost of living, and the system for deciding 
academic tenure.

Trustees OK 
Eissey plan 



Because of financial difficulties, the Board of 
Trustees (BOT) has decided to back JC 
President-elect Edward Eissey in determining if 
Palm Beach County residents will support a tax 
increase to supply the college with additional 
revenue. 

Slated to take over officially later this year, 
Eissey is seeking authority to hold a referendum to 
see if voters will support JC with a maximum of a 
one-half mill increase in local property taxes. 

A half mill increase would mean a 50 cent tax 
increase for every SI, 000 of assessed property 
value;. 

Faced with increased salary demands and rising 
operating costs, Eissey devised the plan saying 
authority to hold a referendum should be sought 
now though it may not be used immediately. 

"Wc will not ask people to support us with local 
taxes if there is any other alternative," he said. 
"We are looking into every possible avenue for 
adequate funding" but "it's the only way we can 
find the resources to give the faculty increased 
salaries, meet maintenance and energy costs and 
continue some of our programs." 

"Our number one priority is faculty salaries, I 
don't see any way to assist the faculty when we 
don't get any more money from the state than we 
do." 

Before proposing the referendum to county 
administrators, Eissey said, "we want our local 
legislators to study the possibility of allowing JC to 
go before the people so we can present our 
program." 

"If the people in this community feel we are of 
some service (through programs for the retired, 
handicapped and continuing education) then there 
lias to be some financial support. There is no such 
thing as a free lunch."

Although several legislators liked the idea, both 
Sen. Phif Lewis (D- West Palm Beach) and Rep. 
Reid Moore (R-West Palm Beach) said it might 
upset state funding formulas. 

Ten years ago JC and all other Florida 
community colleges turned over the major burden 
of their funding to the state, but tight fisted 
legislatures and rising expenses have given Eissey 
the desire to return some of the burden to Palm 
Beach County. 

A similar proposal was made several years ago 
and rejected. 

In an earlier special board meeting, the BOT 
unanimously endorsed creation of a nine-menber 
State Community College Co-ordinating Board, 
seeking better funding from Tallahassee through 
more effective representation. 



Aid available to needy students 



Grants, loans, scholarships 
and other forms of financial aid 
in widely varied fields are open 
in JC students though some 
eligibility requirements have 
changed. 

The Education Amendments 
of 1976 provide that students 
getting BEOG, SE IOG, 
workstudy or federal loans will 
continue to do so only as long as 
satisfactory progress, as speci- 
fied by school standards and 
practices, is maintained. 

Those not meeting the 
minimum standards, which 
range from a 1.4 average for 
lhosetaking up to 14 hours to a 
2.0 average for those who have 
attempted over 45 hours, will be 
placed on academic probation at 
lheeridoftheterm. 

If the appropriate grade point 
average (GPA) has not been 
attainted after one semester on 



probation, the student will be 
notified and his aid discontin- 
ued. 

Students can reestablish 
eligibility by enrolling at their 
own expense and then raising 
their GPA to. the academic 
standard. 

Presently, more than $18,900 
in scholarships are available to 
qualified sophomores who will 
graduate in May. 

Applicants must have a 3.0 or 
better GPA, and in most cases 
demonstrate financial need. 
Applications may be picked up 
in the financial aid office AD-02, 
the deadline for completed 
applications is March 1. 

Scholarships include 17 of no 
particular study area with a 
cumulative value of $11,000, 
five for Health related majors 
with a combine worth of $2,900, 
four art scholarships totaling 



$800, two engineering scholar- 
ships totaling SI, 000 and one 
each for: a conservation major 
worth $400; a Sales and 
Marketing major valued at $200; 
a business major (to attend 
FAU), worth $f,000; a Phi Theta 
Kappa member (to attend FAU) 
worth $1 ,500; a foreign student, 
worth $100 and an unspecified 
amount for a minority student. 

Students majoring in Food 
Service management can com- 
pete for three $1,700, five 
$3,300 and 100 $600 scholar- 
ships. 

Applicants in this field must 
be full-time students and will be 
selected on the basis of 
motivation towards an industry 
career, academic record and 
financial need. The application 
deadline is April 1. 

More scholarship information 
is available from the financial 
aid office. 



Group and organ 
playing at church 



An original work heard for the 
first time anywhere will 
highlight "Sounds of Brass and 
Organ", a concert sponsored by 
the music department and the 
local chapter of the American 
Guild of Organists. 

Commissioned especially for 
the ninth annual brass choir and 
organ concert. Dr. Gary C. 
White, Chairman oi the theory 
and composition division of the 
music department of Iowa State 
University, has composed and 
will conduct his piece, entitled 
"Pulsar". 

The premier performance will 
take place 8 p.m., Feb. 27, at~ 
the First Methodist Church of 
West Palm Beach. 

Also, White will conduct a 
music seminar on campus Feb. 
22. His new work will be among 
the topics discussed. Though 
primarily for music majors, all 
interested persons are welcome 
to attend the 1:20 p.m. meeting. 

Besides his administrative 
duties, he is also in charge of 
the electronic music studio at 
ISU. White developed the studio 
with the help of engineers and 
computer specialists and later 



wcni on to study computer 
controlled electronic music 
himself. 

It is one of the few occasions 
for area music buffs to hear the 
sound of brass instruments 
combined with the pipe organ, 
playing music by composers 
langing from the 17th to the 
20th century, said Sy Pryweller, 
JC concert band and jazz 
ensemble director. 

Pryweller, who will conduct 
most of the concert, said, "two 
brass choirs are opposite to each 
other in the .balcony of the 
church;'- and; the listener: hears 
the music in stereo-phonic 
sound. When the organ is added 
there is a three dimensional 
effect. It's truly beautiful 
music." 

The pipe organ will be played 
by church organist Leigh 
Conover. Charles Damsel, III, a 
former trombonist, will sing 
accompanied by the instruments 
In works by Heinrich Shutz and 
George Handel, among others. 

While there is no charge for 
admission, donations will be 
accepted.

Morals become problem 
in Helsinki and Duckburg 




"""■'■'-" i -rmrim . r - , ,, . » \?"«5 "C&»— 

Beam 



Staid and dignified Wall Street Journal used a 
sizable portion of a recent front page to report on a 
great "'morals" debate now raging in Europe. 

ii seems the Helsinki youth committee in 
Finland has ruled Donald Duck, Walt Disney 
famous cartoon character, is immoral. 

Evidence includes Donald's 50-year engagement 
to Daisy Duck, uncertain parentage of Donald's 
nephews Huey, Dewy and Louie and Donald's 
sailor suit that leaves his feathery bottom nude. 
The committee concluded this was a racy life style 
inappropriate for youthful viewing. 

Consequently, the Helsinki city council 
cancelled its Jibrary subscriptions to Donald Duck 
comic books at youth city libraries. 

On the other hand, in Hamburg, West Germany, 
Hans von Storch, a 28-year-old mathematician and 
founder of the 100-member Donald Duck, club 
labeled the charges ridiculous. He pointed out that 
Donald is one of the most moral characters in 
"story. He does not drink, smoke, take drugs or 
hav^e sex with Daisy. So he protested to the Finnish 
ambassador to West Germany, demanding that the 
council reverse its decision. 

Donald has admirers and fans as far awav as 
Norway who are serious scholars, delving "into 
every phase of his life and background The

Daisy" sent them to Donald, requesting he raise 
them as his own. Nothing was ever heard about her 
again. 

When, Donald gets into trouble, he runs to 
Timbuktu. There are countless theories and heated 
debates on the exact location of Duckburg. A 
complicated mathematical computation determin- 
ed the length of a duck mile. 

Research still goes on about the fate of the 
sneaky and corrupt Mr. Pig, mayor of Duckburg. 
About four years ago he was mysteriously replaced 
by a duck. Scholars speculate on a "duckgate" 
affair, with Mr. Pig forced to resign. 

Another question hotly pursued is whether 
Donald has teeth. When he smiles or sings he is 
toothless; when angry, toothy. 

Tempers flared during a discussion about 
; getting ji Donald feather fo' r . a club emblem.' 
Opponents charged they "would be" violating 
Donald's rights, and'tliat there would be no 'wav to 
get one. . ■ ■ ■ j 

Finally, a contest is being conducted to write a 
melody for Donald's song, words originally 
recorded in a 1 954 comic book. 

Tempers again flare as the morals charges are 
debated between West Germany and Finland. 
High levels of government are involved as the 
tension mounts. 

Donald should get out of Europe before the 
tension gets worse and come home. Our justices 
have ruled that four-letter words are OK, he could 
wear a bottomless outfit without problem and there 
would be no question, of parental status for his 
young wards. 

_ Only one consideration: would Donald Duck 
become corrupted rf he did come home? Is the 
moral climate here good enough for him?

Surveyors donate 
reference works 



25 of the more widely used 
reference bqoks utilized by land 
surveyors have been donated to 
JC by the Florida Society of 
Professional Land Surveyors 
(F.S.P.L.S.). 

In 1965, JC and the 
F.S.P.L.S. set up Florida's first 
land surveying curriculum. As a 
result, several state junior 
colleges and the University of 
Florida have started similar 
programs. 

Many JC students who have 
graduated from the program are 
actively engaged in the field 
'throughout the state. 
■' '"Clyde McNeal, spokesman for 
the grtnip said in a prepared 
news release that the profession 
"has benefitted greatly from the 
junior college program and this 
in turn improves the service 



rendered to the general public," 

The chapter selected the 
books on the basis of their wide 
use and it ultimately plans to 
expand on the collection. 

"Our chapter is very proud of 
the program we have at JC and 
look forward to future oppor- 
tunities in working with 
students who are aspiring to 
become land surveyors," the 
release said. 

Representing F.S.P.L.S. at 
the presentation were Jay 
Sweet, Palm Beach Chapter 
president; William Wallace Jr. 
President-elect; and Paul J. 
Fotorny,> Southeast District 
director. 

Librarian Benjamin S. Rob- 
erts and surveying instructor

Views differ 
on evaluations 



By Kathy Ortiz 
Staff Writer 

Helping instructors assess how students view 
them, students are asked to fill out evaluation 
forms at the end of each term. 

Mandated by the Board of Trustees (BOT), in 
the past the same form was issued to each 
instructor regardless of the course or the number 
of students taught. 

Currently, however, students are given an 
"Instructor Course Appraisal" which is still an 
evaluation but in a different form. The survey 
consists of 25 questions selected out of 195 by the 
instructors themselves plus five major questions 
that appear on every evaluation. 

All questions are based on positive thinking, i.e. 
students respond with strongly agree, agree, 
undecided, disagree or strongly disagree. 

Sample questions include: 

• This course is among the best I have ever taken 

• This instructor is among the best I have known 

• Instructor senses when the student is bored 

• Instructor talks at a pace suitable for maximum 



comprehension 

• Instructor respects constructive criticism 

Results are given to the department chairman 
and arc then passed on to the instructors. 

One comment on the evaluations by Social 
Science. Instructor Trinette Robinson was, "it may 
hurl. the instructors self-image" and that it is "a 
contribution to low teacher morale." 
. Dean of Academic Affairs, Dr. Paul Graham, 
feels the purpose of the evaluations is to help 
instructors see themselves as the students see 
them, enabling teachers to "grow and develop, 
and maybe do something about their 
weaknesses." 

The problem here says Robinson, is "students 
get what they put into the course, regardless of the 
teacher" and students tend to make selections 
based on popularity. If a failing student doesn't 
like a teacher, the theory goes he'll blame his 
failure on them. 

Also, she says, instructors don't know the 
standards to which the evaluations are compared, 
and whether it is an equal comparison. 



Unusual art display shown 



By Charlie Wilson 
Staff Writer 

A display of artworks that can be considered by 
some to be of a more sensual nature than what one 
normally encounters in the Humanities building 
gallery is being shown through Feb. 24. 

J.Cooper, Gallery Director at Florida 
International University is presenting an exhibition 
consisting of 16 works, half paintings and half 
drawings. 

Cooper describes his work as being, "figurative 
and realistic, but not photographically so." 

Realistic art is looked upon as being factual and 
true to life. There is not room for imagination to 
become involved in what the observer sees. 

The canvas itself conveys the message intended 
for the prospective viewer. 

Comprised mainly of scantily clad young ladies 
langorously perched on well padded sofas,, the 
works range in size from small enough to be 
considered a small portrait to large enough to 
encompass a large wall. 

Located on the first floor of the Humanities 
building, the exhibit is open to the public from 7:30 
a.m. to. 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 
from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Fridays. The Gallery is 
closed weekends and holidays.

Beings pay unearthly visit 

^7~ 



By Sonny Nyman 
Staff Writer 

It comes to mind, sometimes, after having seen all these new sci-fi 
flicks, if in fact there would be a star war in my lifetime. 
Would I be living within the evils of a Galactic War Lord? 
Would 1 be Xeroxing off blueprints of the enemy's military base 
and sending them, at light speed, in a ticker-tape shower across the 
Milky Way for the GIA (Galactic Intelligence Agency)? 
No. 

Consider first that without a close encounter, "Star War's" rebel 
base would have been just another earth floating around in Einstein's 
theory of relative time. ■ • 

No kidding. After all, they had to have been discovered sometime, 
right? 

Before you can visit the neighbors you've got to knock on their 
door. 

In this case, the neighbors (aliens) didn't knock, they just dropped 
in. 

Their front door entrance was cancelled by their chic 
interpretation of. my chimney. The three scaled the masonry and 
made a landing pad out of a beanbag chair by the hearth. 

While dusting themselves, they looked back at this odd entrance and 
twittered with disgust. 

Now I had second thoughts about Santa Claus. 
I always knew there was intelligent life out there somewhere. The 
trouble was, they knew that too. However, that life wasn't me. 

Without hesitating, the three spacey houseguests, still a little sooty 
from a grande de entrance', proceeded to check up on the latest things 
in household appliances. 

I gawked from an obscure opening in my bedroom door. 
They chortled and burbled excitedly at the "toys" in my kitchen. 
After what I declared a yule tide entrance, they seemed to be 
having a Christmassy encounter of their own kind. 

What was I to make of this early morning house call? "It's only 2 
a.m.! They sure are an untimely bunch," I thought. 
Why the secrecy? 

The only way to Find out was to ask. My feet were frozen. to the 
floor. It was nerves. 

They proceeded in the fascination of my blender, punching the 
buttons from grind to frappe' and back - as my electric mixer danced 
in an aimless frenzy onthe counter, beaters flailing. 

This process, of about an hour, went on as they travelled from one 
end of the kitchen to the other discovering such things as my can 
opener, toaster, coffeepot and meat grinder. 

However, the discovery- of my dishwasher was, to them, a 
goldmine. • 

. In order of rank, apparently something like lieutenant, second 
lieutenant and cook, they, one-by-one took a bath in the dishwasher, 
drying off in the microwave oven on "defrost." 
It was a good thing they were two feet tall. 

After all was clean and in good order, they straightened up and 
commenced to play with each kitchen fascination. 

Upon turning around, the lieutenant spotted the refrigerator. The 
three got down on their knees Hindu style and praised the almighty 







d^&ZMnm 



god, tall .and lean withi peaceful humming voice. 

It spoke their lingo. 

For ten minutes, ray company worshipped and carried on an 
intelligent (or so I thought) conversation with the freon compressor. 
- . Finally getting up the nerve to go in and ask them who they were 
and where they came from, I unstuck my feet and threw on my robe, 
while slithering quietlyinto the kitchen. 

They looked at me as if I were interrupting a religious ceremony. 

Without further' adieu, "they rose from paying homage to the 
refrigerator and; Ijegancolleeting thy appliances to take them back to 
whence they came. And I, not one to argue with company, obliged. 
But I was saddened tothink of all those energy gobbling time savers 
— gone! 

Before they made their heavily-loaded-down retreat up my 
' 'entrance chute, " I hai one question. 

I asked the lieutenant if he knew a guy named God. 

Speaking broken medieval English, he turned to his second 
lieutenant and chipped, "doesn't he own the Interstellar Deli on 
Fornax?" 



Telekinetic powers have many uses for Man 



By Laurie Mann 
Staff Writer 

Would you like to be able to 
move objects or communicate 
over long distances just by using 
your mind? 

Telekinesis (TK), the ability 
to move objects with the mind, 
has become of such great 
interest. 

Dr. Helmut Schmidt, para-, 
psychologist, has devised a TK 
machine that measures and 
tests a person's ability to move 
objects with the mind. 

One of Schmidt's machines 
presents a subject with a circle 
of nine small lamps arranged on. 
a display panel. These images 
consecutively flash on in a 
forward-backward motion. 

The subject is supposed to 
will, with his thought patterns, 
the images in a counterclock- 
wise motion as he is instructed. 

The machine was a success in 
measuring TK and-it is known 
as one of the greatest 
breakthroughs in parapsychol- 
ogy- 

. Telepathy, extra sensory 
perception (ESP), psychic sur- 
gery and healing, thoughtogra- 
phy and precognition are all 
good examples of TK in action. 

Telepathy, ESP and thought- 
ography are all processes in 
which thoughts are transmitted 
beyond normal physical bound- 
aries. 

Telepathy and ESP are 
defined as communication over 



long or short distances between 
two people via the mind. 

Thoughtography is a method 
by which recognizable photo- 
graphic images are imprinted on 
film by simply staring with 
intense concentration into a 
camera lens. 

Psychic surgery and healing 
are good examples of the 
tremendous power of TK. There 
are many documented cases of 
pain being relieved by placing 



hands onthe area to be healed. 

Clinical tests performed by 
scientists, doctors ^nd p*ya- 
psychologists have reached the 
same conclusions; the patients 
were healed and the pain 
relieved. The ways in which this 
was done still remain myster- 
ious and unknown. 

Precognition is the most 
controversial of the many 
phases of TK. The ability to 
cross time boundaries and 



receive images of the past and 
future have always fascinated 
and frightened man. 

Precognition has received the 
worst reputation of ■ all TK 
powers. Those who possess this 
power were frequently labeled 
as "witches" and "insane." 

Fortunately, progress in 
proving that psychic phenomena 
really exists proves many 
theories which make "labeling" 
a thing of the past.

Psychic defines 
gift of past life 



By Kathy Cavanaugh 

Venture Editor t 

Her protective canine, who 
barks as visitors approach her 
door, almost makes you want to 
pivot and return home. 

But when she, professional 
psychic Debbie Weiner of 
Lauderhill, greets you with her 
expressive smile and tells her 
harmless poodle to be quiet, you 
are then reassured and 
comfortable. 

Upon entering her house, the 
scent of incense complements 
her Oriental designed living 
room. 

A portrait of an Oriental 
person, whom Weiner claims is 
herself in a past life, adorns a 
wall in the Orientally flourished 
room. 

How does she know that is her 
in a past life? 

To that question she 
emphatically replies, "I know! I 
walked into a lighting store and 
knew it was me in a former 
life." 

Weiner traced herself back by 
using the laws of karma, a 
Hindu belief which suggests 
that certain lessons are learned 
in each successive life. 

She is certain that she was 
Oriental in her past life because 



another psychic also traced her 
past lives and had the same 
result as she. 

Weiner is sure that she met 
her finance in a past life when 
they were both 16 or 17. 
However,'- they did not marry in 
that life as they will in the future 
of this life. 

Can she see into her future? 

She answers, "Umm, that's 
difficult to do-seeing someone's 
close to you is hard too because 
emotion gets in the way." 

Weiner also says that we 
cannot see our own future 
because "God doesn't want us 
to." 

Seeing into her clients' 
futures is how she makes a 
living. 

Many people come to her and 
ask questions about the future 
of their love life and business. 
For several days or for however 
long it takes to answer their 
question, she ponders and 
meditates in what she calls her 
"reading room." 

The psychic flashes Weiner 
receives "just come to me," she 
says. 

Making a living at being a 
psychic is the good sideof that 
rare talent. But being a psychic 
also has its drawbacks.

THIRD GENERATION pyschic, astrologist and numerologist Debbie 
Weiner lectures, analyzes handwriting and gives psychic readings. 



"I've lost a lot of friends 
because I told (hem what was 
going to happen to them," 
recalls Weiner. 

Weiner said that many people 
ask her if psychic thoughts are 
an energy field or wavelength. 
She does not know the answer to 
that but she does know that she 
is a third generation psychic; 
her mother and grandmother 
were psychics. 



"Psychic abilities," explains 
Weiner, "are inherited." She 
goes onto explain that the 
difference between extra sen- 
sory perception and coincidence 
is when "coincidences" start 
occurring with regularity. 

Weiner is not "only an 
experienced psychic, she is also 
knowlegeable in numerology, 
astrology, astrographology and 
card readings. 



How sexy is your style of writing? 




i-)| [ ,-i>-hM.%\ 



By Kathy Cavanaugh 
Venture Editor 



Besides being careful about 
what you say, perhaps you 
should start being mindful of 
not only what you write, but how 
you write it. 

"A stroke of the pen is as 

revealing as a slip , of the 

tongue," says (writes!) Billie 

Rosen, author of "Handwriting 

' Analysis." 

Graphology, or the science of 
handwriting analysis, attempts 
to show relationships between a 
person's handwriting and his 
personality and character. 

For example, the manner in 
which a person dots his i 
reveals, according to Rosen, his 
concern with detail. 

A well centered dot reflects 
one who is good at details. A dot 
placed left of the i represents 



procrastination, caution anfl 
hesitancy. Placed to the right it 
suggests the writer has fast 
thoughts before he acts. 

"Dash" dots indicate a lively, 
active person. - 

I dots belong in the upper 
zone along with t bars and upper 
loops of letters. 

When upper loops are thrust 
high into the upper zone, great 
imagination and intuitive ideas 
most likely occupy, that writer's 
mind. 

T stems spread far apart 
or ts that are formed like a star 
indicate sensitivity. 

The middle zone involves alt 
letters with no upper or lower 
loops. It is the basic zone that 
reveals the writer's concern 
with social relationships, ego 
expression and assertiveness. 

Largely written letters in the 
middle zone are most likely 
found in the writing of someone 
who magnifies his emotions and 
will not limit his expectations of 
himself. 



"The pressure of the handwrit- 
ing has to be tested which I do 
by running my fingers across 
the back of the page." 

- Debbie Weiner 



Oftentimes, fluctuations of 
slant occur in the middle zone 
which indicates that the writer 



makes use of his senses and 
feelings. 

Indeed, a person's individual 
handwriting slant can change 
according to the mood he is in or 
if he is under stress. 



Heavy pressure reveals self- 
confidence and a strong sex 
drive. 

-Billie Rosen 



That is why, for an accurate 
handwriting analysis to be 
made, the analyst must be 
given varied samples of 
someone's handwriting that 
have been written several days, 
months or years apart. 

According to Debbie Weiner, 
the only professional astro- 
graphologist (one who studies 
handwriting characteristics of 
people in a specified zodiac 
sign) in Florida, "Handwriting 
analysis is a very difficult thing 
to do and it's very time 
consuming." • 

Says Weiner, "The pressure 
of the handwriting has to be 
tested which T do by running my 
fingers across the back of the 
page." 

Weiner believes -that most 
Scorpios have a tendency to 
apply heavy pressure when 
writing. 

Rosen says that heavy 
pressure reveals a strong will, 



strong sex drive, self-confiden- 
ce, sensuous personality and a 
persistence in work habits. 

In contrast, a "light pressure 
writer" is usually one who 
wants to avoid commitment. 
Also, he can be timid, in ill 
health or be a spiritual, 
introverted person. 

Sharpness, which is related to 
light pressure, is dominantly 
found in scripts of professional 
and {ntellectual people who 
possess abilities to criticize and 
judge. 

. Fine, thin letters characterize 
sharpness. Most Virgos, says. 
Weiner, write with small and do 
not complete bottom loops. 
Those two traits indicate 
intelligence. 

Artists and Leos frequently 
embellish big, bold capital 
letters, observes Weiner. 

Weiner adds that whenever 
you underscore a person's 
"name, in a letter or any other 
time you write a name, it means 
that you really like that person; 
that person is very important to 
you! 

Beware of illegible signatures 
and scripts. Weiner warns that 
the writer of such a signature or 
script is very secretive and is 
trying to hide something. 

Your handwriting is a unique 
blueprint of your personality. 
Just as your fingerprint can be 
used for identification because 
there is not another tike it, so 
too is there no other type of 
handwriting like yours!

Staff Writer 

In the initial move to form a 
judicial branch of Student 
Government, the SG executive 
board has appointed Senator 
Robert Calamunci as chief 
justice. 

Calamunci's appointment to 
the post came after weeks of 
study by the constitutional 
revisions committee that a 
judiciary is needed. Not only is 
the branch needed, the 
committee says, but it is also 
stipulated in the present SG 
constitution. 

Almost unanimously confirm- 
ed by the senate, Calamunci 
stated, "I have a feeling I'll be 
very successful at it." Referring 
to his plans to confer with the 
court, he said, "We'll meet 
whenever the need arises to 
interpret the constitution." 

The judicial department, 
which is to include seven 
judges, is expected to be filled 
this term. 

SG President Sharon Chris- 
tenbury explained, regarding 
the rest of the judicial 
seats, "We (the executive 
board) will appoint and the 
senate will approve. ' ' 

In other nominations in SG 
Senator Derrick Spradley was 
delegated as parlimentarian and 
Mike Gurklis was named 
sergent-at-arms. Nancy Hafrell 
filled one of two senatorial slots. 



The other is expected to be filled 
Wednesday. 

At the Florida Junior College 
Student Government Associa- 
tion (FJCSGA) District Five 
conference Feb. 11 close to 50 
members of governing bodies 
from Indian River to Dade 
County schools attended. 

At the meeting a proposal was 
made to present to the FJCSGA 
convention in Panama City in 
late March a plan to change a 
marijuana law in the Florida 
Constitution. 

According to statute S239.582 
if a student at any community 
college or state supported 
university is adjucated guilty of 
possessing or selling a narcotic 
or hallucigenic drug- on or off 
campus- he or she is 
automatically expelled from that 
institution for a year. 

Many believe the law should 
be deleted because as Senator 
Patrick Bagley put it, "It's 
hanging over the student's 
heads." 

Concerning the gameroom, 
minor details are to be soon 
worked out at which time the 
equipment is to be ordered. 
Included in the accessories are: 
foos-ball, air hoc.key, backgam- 
mon and a tennis table. 

Senator Mike Lanigan, who 
heads the recreation committee, 
said, "We are also looking into

Pacer soccer club undefeated 



ByJimSwann 

Tlie Pacer soccer club is off to a strong 
start after winning their first two games 
of the year. After getting off on the right 
foot the team has high hopes for the 
season. 

Defeating Deerfield International 7-3 in 
overtime was the teams first game of the 
year. The Pacers jumped off to a 3-0 lead 
at halftime but were unable to maintain 
it. Deerfield tied the game at 3-3 and 
forced a 15-minute overtime period. In 
that overtime the Pacers came to life and 



scored four goals and blanked their 
opponents, enroute to their first win of 
the year. 

In this game the scoring came from 
Gene Garcia with 2 goals, Esmail 
Shahrazaei I had 2 and Howard Parker, 
Russ Thomas and Pedro Zamora all had ' 
one apiece. 

In their second outing the Pacers 
defeated Pratt and Whitney 3-2 in a tough 
game. Gino Jimenez, player-coach of the 
Pacers, lead the scoring with 2 goals 
while Noberto Azqurata added one. 



The Pacers are not in any league as of 
yet but a Palm Beach league with eight 
area teams is in the process of being 
formed. 

Consisting of students from the 
college, the team practices regularly 
when schedules permit. The Pacers also 
play games almost every Sunday a little 
after '1 p.m. or whatever time everyone 
gets up. Most of the games are played 
here at the college's field and are now 
just for practice benefit until the league 
starts. 



Money was a big problem for the team 
last year but the situation is better this 
term as the Intramural Department is 
going to aid financially. 

Being students here and having to 
work besides makes it hard for the 
players to dedicate themselves fully to 
the game. But dedication is what they 
strive for and Coach Jimenez is pleased 
with his players. "I feel we have a better 
team than last year and we are starting 
out on the right foot after winning our 
first two matches," he points out. 





Pacers receive tough lessons 



PACERS SHOWING tough defense against Edison. It was this type 
of play that enabled the Pacers to overcome a 21 point half-time 
deficit and go on to win. 



Pacers split games 



By Bill Meeks 
Sports Writer 

The Pacers lost a tough one to Dade North's Falcons 75 to 55, at the 
Falcon's gym. Tyrone Moss led all scorer's with 18 points to lead the 
Falcons to victory. The Pacers were led by Bill Buchanan's 13 points 
but mistakes hurt the team which only trailed at the half by two, 38 to 
36. 

' After that the Falcons took advantage of the Pacers by controlling 
the rebounds off both the offensive and defensive boards. Bad' 
shooting towards the end also figured in the Pacers defeat. The 
Pacers are now 9-12 over all, with a 4-7 conference record. The 
Falcons record is 16-9 with a 8-3 conference record. . 

Later in the week the Pacers bounced back to beat the Edison 
Buccaneers 84 to 82. The Pacers came back from being down 21 
points, 40to 19 at the half and pulled off a miraculous victory over the 
Buccaneers. 

Mike Bennett led the Pacers with 19 points, while Edisons Curtis 
Glaspers scored 22 for the losers. The Pacers improved their 
conference record to 5-7. The Buccaneers are 4-8 in conference play. 
The attendance at the game was poor as only 65 people viewed the 
close thriller. The play offs begin this Monday and the Pacers hope to 
play strongly. 



By Paul Jenkins 
Sports Writer 

Last weekend the baseball 
team hosted four exhibition 
games at the West Palm Beach 
Municipal Stadium against 
Biscayne College, Florida Inter- 
national University, Florida 
Southern College and the 
University of Miami. 

The Pacers lost to" Biscayne 
8-5 in 13 innings, then defeated 
FIU 3-1, lost 3-1 to Florida 
Southern and lost to U of M 6-1 . 

You wouldn't expect losing 
three out of four games would 
please coach Dusty Rhodes but 
he took it as a sign of a good 
upcoming season. 

"We shouldn't be able to stay 
with them," said Rhodes. 
"Beating one of them is like a 
high school team beating us." 

Both Florida Southern and 
Florida International were in the 
lop twenty in the country last 
year. 

In the first game, against 



Biscayne, JC jumped out to a 
1-0 lead in the first inning and 
held on to the lead behind the 
pitching of Bob Charron until 
the seventh inning when 
Biscayne scored an unearned 
run. 

In the seventli inning Rhodes 
put in some of the second 
stringers and it showed as the ■ 
Pacers committed nine errors in 
the game, most of them after 
the backups were put in. 

Biscayne went ahead 3-1 on 
two runs in the eighth. With two 
outs a hit batter and a double 
put runners on second and 
third. An infield single scored 
the first run then an error by 
shortstop Jeff Smith allowed the 
second run to score. 

JC battled back in the ninth 
when Scott Benedict singled, 
Roy Alvarez reached base on an 
error. Back to back walks to Jack 
Crooks and Ed Riveria scored 
one run and a sacrifice fly by Vic 
Biazis tied up the game. 

Biscayne scored two runs in 

m 



the twelth on one hit, an error, a 
sacrifice fly, a sacrifice bunt and 
a balk. 

The Pacers battled back again 
as Smith and Ed Walker drew 
walks and advance as Joe 
Chancy grounded out. Benedict 
got an intentional walk then 
Alvarez singled home two runs. 

Biscayne scored three runs in 
the thirteenth on a single, a 
double, a walk and two errors by 
Smith. This time JC could not 
come back despite putting two 
men on base with just one out. 

The Pacers rebounded from 
their loss to Biscayne with a 3-1 
victory the following night over 
FIU. John Shrewsberry pitched 
a complete game and allowed 
just five hits. 

Both of the winning runs were 
unearned but it made a nice 
change to see the Pacers scoring 
on errors rather than the 
opponents. 

With the score, tied 1-1 
Alvarez apparently flew out but

Player vengeance causes problems 



By Jim Swann 
Co-Editor Sports 

Aggressiveness has always been an 
integral part in many sports but today 
there is a growing concern oyer the 
amount of unwarranted violence in 
professional sports. 

Sports such as Football, Rugby and 
Soccer have always contained great 
amounts of physical contact and 
aggressive play. Aggressiveness has 
been as much a part of the game as the 
game itself. Other sports such as Boxing 
and Hockey center aroung rough play. 

The difference though between the 
past-when roughness was just part of the 
game- and today's violence is the 
unrestricted use of retaliatory actions. 
There is a clear cut difference between an 



aggressive player who stays within the 
rules and one who takes justice into his 
own hands. - 

Physical toughness is just another 
factor in winning, a physche or added 
advantage in any sport. Aggressive play 
is sportsmanlike . when kept within' the 
rules but as has been witnessed recently 
can become an uncontrollable brawl when 
the rules are thrown aside and 
vengeance steps in. \ 

One recent incideni that shed light on 
this controversy was the scuffle between 
Pittsburgh's Joe Greene and Denver's 
Mark Lyons in the playoffs. Commission- 
er Pete Rozelle commented the main part 
pf this problem was that Greene tried to 
take justice into his own hands. Greene, 
who was angered by Lyon on a play, 
appeared to take a vigil ante stand . 



It is this type of action that has added 
so much to the violence problem. Getting 
even for a cheap shot, vengeance for over 
aggressive play or anger for what ever 
reason, are all factors that add to the 
violence in todays sports world. 

Recently it has been suggested that the 
use of instant replay by officials could 
bring more player justification and lessen 
the need for vigilante actions. This 
suggestion might help but the 
lengthening effect it would have on the 
game would make it worthless. 

A better suggestion might be the use of 
• more officials in order to catch everything 
that takes place in the game. The real 
answer though lies in the player's hands 
as they must leam'to place more faith in 
the official's ability to govern the game 
and less in their own justifying abilities. 



Hockey has always been a violent game 
and because of the violence in this sport, 
it has not been as shocking as with other 
sports. A great amount of violence in 
hockey comes from player retaliation and 
the answer is the same as with any sport. 

Aggressive or contact sports can easily 
breed hot. tempers. They usually go 
unnoticed but when they are left 
uncontrolled, then look out for the brawl 
that follows. 

It appears that stricter rules, instant 
replays or any other judgement that may 
be added to the game might not be the 
real answer at all. The real answer lies in 
the ability of the players to gain more self 
control and to realize that they are not 
only the model of sports achievement but 
also the example of good sportsmanship 
of all young athletes.

There is a large variety of sports and activities 
available for students in the program. Individual, 
dual, and team competition are all incorporated in 
the various recreations. 

Many think they must be a "pro" to take part in 
Intramurals. On the contrary, enjoyment, 
recreation and exercise are the major concern in 
such a program. You'll probably gain some skill 
while having some fun. 

The Presidential Sports Award is supported by 
Intramurals by encouraging students to participate 
in those activities of their choice that, normally 
wouldn't be held on an organized basis.

Beachcomber 

Voice of the Palm Beach Junior College Student 

Vol. 39, No. \JLV\ Monday, March 6,1978 Lake Worth Fla. 33461 








PHOTO BY LAURIE MANN 

Trustee Susann Anstead, JC President Dr. Harold Manor and 
President-elect Dr. Ed Eissey at the special board meeting at which it 
was decided to issue academic grants to students involved in such 
activities as the Beachcomber, drama, forensics, music or the 
Galleon. 

Legislators reject 
Eissey tax appeal 



A bid by JC President-elect 
Dr. Eissey to see if county" 
voters would support JC with a 
one-half mill tax increase has 
been voted down by the county 
legislative delegation. 

In a public meeting held Feb. 
27, the delegation voted six to 
four against introducing a 
special bill to allow a tax 
referendum as proposed by 
Eissey. 

Amounting to a 50 cent 
increase for every $1,000 of 
assessed property value, over 
the next five years more than 
$20 million would have been 
collected had the issue gone to" 
the voters and been passed. 

Eissey, who said the 
additional funding would have 
been used for salary increases 
for instructors and to provide 
programs and facilities for the 
handicapped among other 
things, was very surprised by 
the defeat, blaming it on 
politics. 

"I think it (the proposal) 
failed because' it's an election 
year. I definitely expected it to 
pass. I didn't anticipate for one 
, moment they would not let the 
people vote. ..I'm saddened by 
the fact that we do not have this 
option to go to the people." 

At the meeting, the delega- 
tion first voted to put a five-year 
sunset provision into the 
proposed bill and seemed on the 
way to a split vote favoring it. 
The sunset provision would 
have ended the bill's effective- 
ness after five years. 

Supporting the bill were 
Reps. Don Hazelton and Ed 
Healy, both West Palm Beach 
democrats, and Reps. Bill 
Jarnes (R-Delray Beach) and 
Tom Lewis (R-North Palm 

The bill's two most vocal 
opponents were West Palm 
Beach democrats Sen. Phil 
Lewis and delegation Chairman 
Rep. John Considine. Also 
voting against were Sens. Don 
Childers and Harry Johnston, 
both West Palm Beach 
democrats and Reps. Reid 
Moore (R-Palm Beach) and Bill 
Taylor (D-Tequesta). 

Considine said that while the 
lawmakers' hearts were with the 
Eissey cause, there were some 



questions about the precedent 
setting bill that would make JC 
the first school in the state to 
receive local as well as state 
funds. 

. Ten years ago, JC and all 
other Florida community col- 
leges turned over the major 
burden of their funding to the

Aid being sought 
for county refuge 

By Sonny Nyman 
. Staff Writer 

With help from an area service club, two campus clubs are 
sponsoring a canned food and household articles drive to aid the 
county YWCA in providing much needed goods to a county and 
children's refuge. 

Representing the Early Childhood Club (ECC) and Sales and 
Marketing, Kay Davis and Dana Bathurst decided to take on the 
project. Zonta member Dean Elizabeth Davey is helping organize the 
drive running through March 7. 

The drive, begun Feb. 23, is to help support the financially 
troubled Assault and Battery Program's. domestic assault shelter for 
abused wives and children. 

The shelter's requests were made during a recent Zonta Club 
dinner where Davis and Bathurst were honored as JC's November 
. and December students of the month, respectively. . 

Mary Kay Murray, director of the assault shelter, stressed the 
need for the goods when stating the shelter's financial situation. 

"The perishable and canned goodsare very good because it aids 
our limited budget, " she said. 

Although haying received meager state grants, the shelter must 
rely on local donations. Federal aid was applied for, but not received. 

Running 24-hours daily, seven days a week the shelter provides' an 
emergency refuge for women and children. It also serves as a halfway 
house and a place or security for them during the emotiohal transition 
from the dependence upon a wife-heating husband to self-reliance. 
i Figures used by the domestic assault project in Palm Beach County 
show that 10 reports of domestic disturbances are made daily, but do 
not necessarily involve beatings. However, FBI figures show that for 
every one case reported, 10 go unreported. 

Since its Jan. 1 opening, 19 women and 23 children have made the 
shelter their temporary home. 

Whereabouts of the shelter remain a mystery. Murray says, "The 
location of the shelter Is not being revealed because we want her (the 
victim) to have complete safety. The initial goal is to get her out of 
this situation. 

"She's given some time, safety, and some alternatives so she can 
think of what she wants to do with her life from this point on. " 
'Murray stressed the problem is more widespread than once 
thought. "It's a large problem in Palm Beach County and the 
community needs to be aware. They (the people the shelter serves) 
are the people of Palm Beach County . " 

Donations to the shelter can be brought to Dean Davey' s office in 
the SAC lounge between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Keep politics out 
Of JC classrooms 

Traditionally, some instructors have always been prone to discuss 
personal problems with their students. 

A variation of this old institution - with possible legal repercussions 
- has recently been brought to our attention. 

A few instructors, it seems, have been over anxious to present their 
pet peeves to a captive class of pupils. 

Nothing new or illegal in that -.unless their peeves happen to center 
around the stalemated negotiations between faculty and 
administration. , 

The Unfair Labor Law states that "A public employee organization 
or anyone acting in its' behalf... (is) prohibited from... instigating or 
advocating support, in any positive manner, for an employees 
organization from. . .(students in) institutions of higher learning. " 

Admittedly, only a few of the faculty are guilty of violating this law, 
but those who are should take heed and keep politics out of the 
classroom.

During this same period, some of our major state

undergraduate to post-graduate work and major

Squarely in the middle was the State 
Department of Education, with its emphasis on 
grades K-12. ' 

Dr. Lee Henderson, Director of the Division of 
Community Colleges, admitted no one person can 



effectively represent the junior college segment of 
the educational system. 

Members of the Regent's Planning Committee 
have approved proposals to emphasize the 
university's undergraduate instruction and open 
their doors- to more part-time adult students 
seeking self-improvement. 

On the junior college level, the proposed board, 
as endorsed by our Board of Trustees on February 
5, is a step in the right direction. 

Ralph Turlington as Commissioner of Education 
represents grades K-12. The state university 
system has. the Board of Regents. Community 
colleges will benefit by gaming an effective 
legislative representation through the proposed

Nine prominent citizens at state level plus a

and self-identity. 



WPBC- lend us your ears 



The cafeteria and patio of the 
central campus serve (or should 
serve,) many purposes. 



They are not only places to 
eat, for many people gather 
there to talk, play guitars or 




study - and what better place 
than the patio to study on a 
sunny day? 

Lately however, the overpow- 
ering music from the campus 
radio station, WPBC, has driven 
many students to seek quieter 
shelter. People whose taste runs 
counter to the daily blast of rock 
and soul music are compelled to 
study and eat elsewhere. 

Even conversation in the 
cafeteria can become a chore 
when WPBC is on the air. 

Students in classrooms loca- 
ted near the patio have been 
distracted by the mus ic, 
specially when the warmer 
weather necessitates 
windows. 



Child abuse and wife-beating are examples of man's inhumanity to 
man. It doesn't stop there. From all indications, we are fast becoming 
a violent', unloving, brutal society^ And we. are becoming more so, 
according to a Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS) funded 
research. 

A six-year study of a large group of boys in London brought a grim 
conclusion: "evidence was very strongly supportive of the hypothesis 
that long-term exposure to violence increases the degree to which 
boys engage in violence of a serious kind." They added that the same 
goes for violence of a less serious nature, as well. 

These headlines have appeared in various newspaper and 
magazines in the last six months: Violence is Not a Right of 
Husbandhood, Assault Shelter Now Available, Battering of Elderly 
Increasing, Nursing Home Scandals Exposed, Child Abuse on the 
Increase, Husbands Become Victims of Domestic Violence and Our 
Nation's Teachers Are Taking a Beating. These are not sensational 
come-ons, but authentic cases of personal assault. 

TV and movies have been blamed as implicating factors in this 
upsurge of violence in interpersonal relationships. During an average 
evening of TV we may be subjected to dozens of acts showing 
murder, mayhem and assault. 

Our films have run the gauntlet from western frontier massacres to 
satanic cults and horrors. We've been shown terrifying ants, germs, 
birds, sharks and all sorts of horrible mutants. Every imaginable type 
of disaster has crashed through our living rooms via the screen. Gore 
and brutality have become the familiar visual diet. 

What is happening to us? 

Human behavioral researchers still do not agree on effects. 
Crtminas admit receiving inspiration and often full instructions from 
l V that they can use in the commission of their own crimes. 

The chilling fact we are apt to disregard is that everything we see, 
ao hear and read becomes stored in our subconscious memory bank. 
Will our mental and emotional menu of violence and shock eventually 
emerge m the privacy of our homes? Is the spreading increase of 
afiuse the real answer xothe question we keep asking, "Does TV 
violence affect behavior?" •

Staff Writer 

Aspiring actors and actresses from area high 
schools converged on campus recently to pit their 
dramatic talents against one another in the fourth 
annual high school drama festival. 

The festival attracted participants from Forest 
Hill, Jupiter, Suncoast, Palm Beach Gardens, 
Glades central, Lake Worth and North Shore high 
schools. 

Three schools, Forest Hill, Suncoast and Jupiter 
High, proved themselves to be more capable than 
the rest and were judged to have the most talented 
repertoire of the group. 

The one-act plays' selected as the best ones, as 
well as two one-act plays by the JC players were 
presented to the public Feb. 24 and 25 in the JC 
auditorium. 

The festival consisted of each school performing a 
one act play which was judged according to story 
content, presentation and dramatic ability of the 
participants. 

Koehler featured speaker 



Responsibility for judging the presentation fell 
upon JC's Frank Leahy, Sunny Meyer and intern 
Kathy Houser. Phyllis Ullivarri, Broward 
Community College theater instructor, critiqued 
each playin the contest. 

The winning plays comprise of "Curse You, Jack 
Dalton!", by Wilbert Braun, Forest Hill; "Not 
Tonight!", by George O. Riggs and Mannix. 
Walker, Jupiter; and "Fumed Oak," by Noel 
Coward, Suncoast. 

Laurels for best actor and actress, selected by 
the judges, went to Alan Pratt, Forest Hill and 
Ellen Fiebel, Jupiter. 

The JC Players presented Woody Allen's "God 
(a play)," directed by JC students Gary Lazer, 
Ross Thomas and Susie Nutt. 

The players also presented "When Shake- 
speare's Ladies Meet," by Charles George. The 
play was directed by William Woodard and John 
Kerrison. 

the festival proved to be a success and should 
continue in the future. 



Physics instructor ^e rsons mQ ke pledges 
Roy Robinson dies 



Roy Robinson, a physics 
instructor on campus, died Feb. 
28 of a coronary. 

Robinson, 59, had taught for 
nearly ten years on campus. He 
was a graduate of St. Ambrose 
College, where he attained his 
bachelor's degree, and the 
University of North Dakota 
where he got his masters. 

Robinson had been out on 
leave, due to ill health, having 
suffered a heart attack Oct. 31, 
1977. 
• At that time, Robinson had 
5 ' beeti •'•' under treatment for a " 
heart fibrillation, a condition 
where the heart has trouble 
maintaining a consistant rhy- 
thm. 

He was stricken on campus 
and was aided by faculty 
members as well as students 
until paramedics arrived. He 
was later reported in fair 
condition. 



Robinson, who lived at 7884 
St. Andrews Road, West Palm 
Beach, was buried in a private 
service held Thursday March 2. . 

No details as to survivors 
• were available at press time.

The Delta Omicron chapter of 
Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) held 
one of its largest initiation 
ceremonies recently when 89 
persons pledged to uphold the 
honorary fraternity's social and 
academic standards. ■•■ • 

Palm Beach County Commis- 
sioner Dennis Koehlor, featured 
gUest speaker, , responded to 
PTK's national theme of science 
titled "Man Alive, Can He 
Survive?" by saying that man 
can survive if the new initiates 
do all they can to take man in 
the direction of survival. 

The Commissioner expound- 
ed on each of the following 
survival principles he suggested 
for the initiates: Work at 
something you enjoy-; discipline 
yourself; listen to others and 
rely on your own better 
judgement. 

Koehlor stressed that each 
initiate should feel a personal 
commitment towards the quality 
of air and water for their future 
as well as their children's.

PTK president Robin Wotton 
hosted the occasion and 
introduced guest speakers Dr. 
Harold Manor, JC president; 
Francis Barton, North Campus 
PTK chapter Alpha Gamma 
Sigma president and Daniel 
Hendrix, advisor of Delta 
Omicron. 

Barton stressed the import- 
ance, of getting involved in the 
chapter's activities by saying, 
"Just as you can't be a little bit 
dead or a little bit pregnant, you 
also can't participate halfway. 
You must go all the way." 

Hendrix warned initiates of 
the dangers of selfishness and 
narrow-mindedness. 

A reception, followed the 
ceremony. The New North 
Campus chapter of Alpha' 
Gamma, Sigma held their first 
initiation Feb. 12 at the North 
Palm Beach Public Library. 

A guitar- choir group led by 
Joe Bucheck from St. Paul of the 
Cross Church provided music 
and entertainment prior to the 
ceremony. 

Congratulatory remarks were 
offered by Dr. Manor, JC 
president; Dr. Ottis Smith, JC 
North counselor; Al Meldon, 
social Science instructor; Dan 



Hendrix, Delta Omicron advisor 
and Francis Barton, Alpha 
Gamma Sigma advisor.

Lewis said that if successful, 
JC's action would have started a 
trend with educational institu- 
tions throughout the state, and 
state funding fromulas would 
become impossible to manage 
evenly. 

He warned that the state 
commissioner of education still 
has discretionary powers over 
junior college funding and it's 
possible that JC could lose 
money if it is known that local 
dollars' are available. He also 
cautioned about disrupting state 
funding formulas. 

Similarly, Considine said, 
"We have a state funding 
formula (for junior colleges). 
You start monkeying around 
with that and this county might 
lose more money. They (junior 
colleges) are depending totally 
' on state revenues and I'd like to 
keep it that way. The pressure 
should be on the state to raise 
more money."

"Pulsar," the work created by a music professor 
who at first glance is remindful of comedian Gabe 
Kaplan with the moustache and curls, proved to be 
even more crazy than it's composer's image belies. 
Dr. Gary C. White, music professor at Iowa 
State University accepted the challenge of writing 
a composition for JC's ninth annual brass and 
organ concert held at the First Methodist Church, 
Feb. 27. 

Conductor and JC concert band and ensemble 
director Sy Pryweller led the orchestra in playing 
three pieces by Giovanni Gabrieli, joined by the 
resonant vocals of Charles Damsel, III, a former 
trombonist. 

Damsel highlighted the evening's performance 

with Handel's "The Trumpet Shall Sound" from 

"The Messiah". The quality of his voice was 

- complemented by a trumpet solo bv soohomore 

Jim Bonner, the resulting sound being of an 

angelic nature. 

After a brief intermission, the mood changed 
with the performance of three contemporary songs 
by vocalist Jerry H. Bilik. By this time all were 
awaiting the new work's first public performance. 

White signalled for church organist Kathryn 
Conover to lead the piece. The organ eerily pierced 
the silence, then, like the horsedrawn Roman 
chariots of old, the brass instruments , began 
playing. 

The organ and the brass group played 
alternately, back and forth, until the work abruptly 
ended.

20th century music for you, it's all wierd. ' '

he was "pleased'that it turned out so well and I 
think it's a shame that our orchestra could only

Plant devours helpless insect 







By Mike Diemer 
Guest Writer 

A mosquito hovers in the still 
morning air, lured by^ the 
scintillating secretions of a small 
innocuous-looking red plant lying 
close against the moist sand. It 
ventures closer and ever so lightly 
touches a clear mucilage droplet atop 
a tiny hair-like tentacle. 

The mosquito's legs are instantly 
mired to the surface of the sticky 
fluid. Realizing its error, the 
mosquito attempts to flee, but each 
time it is restrained by the elastic 
mucilage. 

Its legs and body are entangled by 
gluey threads as it flounders 
amongst the tentacles. In another 
futile attempt its, wings become 
trapped in the viscous secretions of 
adjacent tentacles. 



The insect thrashes helplessly in 
the sticky mire. Within an hour, the 
surrounding tentacles bend toward 
the victim grasping him in a 
botanical strangle hold. 

Miniature dramas similar to this 
occur constantly on the tiny 
carnivorous sundew plant. The 
inconspicous sundews, less than 3 
inches across, are truly carnivorous 
having the ability to capture and 
digest insect prey on their sticky 
leaves. 

Sundews are unable to survive in 
poorly drained, nitrogen deficient 
soils by supplementing their food 
intake with nitrogenous substances 
derived from the bodies of captured 
insects. Poorly developed root 
structure serves only to conduct 
water to the plant. 

The structure of the sundew is 



admirabl y suited to survival in its 
bizarre ecological niche. The local 
species forms a flattened rosette of 
spoon-shaped leaves two to three 
inches across. * *_ 

The supper surface of the leaves 
contain 200 globular headed 
tentacles which become increasingly 
longer toward the margins. Each 
tentacle contains a gland that 
secretes a sphere of viscous fluid 
over the tentacle head. The popular 
name "sundew" comes from these 
secretions which sparkle in sunlight. 

When growing in shade the plant 
is green. But when constantly 
exposed to direct sunlight, the entire 
plant takes on a deep red color. 

Remember the meat-eating sun- 
dew next time you neglect to water 
your geranium. Who knows, if you 
let your plants starve, you could be 
their next meal.

King Tut findings 



Hot Tea - Group of the future ?

STURDY BOOTS of a 60' high banyan tree embrace a time-worn wall. 



By Laurie Mann 
Staff Writer 

One of the "rockirrest" groups in Palm Beach County 
takes their name from a rather strange joke. 

Hot Tea is the name and the place to boogie is the 
Duchess Lounge in Lantana. Consisting of four very 
sharp looking and talented musicians, Hot Tea is rapidly 
making their mark in the entertainment world of Palm 
Beach. 

Derrel Brown is excellent on keyboards and does some 
vocals although the lead vocalist is brass player Roy 
Alexander. 

Alexander's deep warm voice makes ballads and love 
songs come alive. 

Edward Finn is also a vocalist but his specialty is lead 
guitar. Finn, a serious musician, is well on his way to 
greatness and stardom. 

Humorist of the group is the irresistible Rock 
"Illerongis" Action (alias Tony Signorelli). Signorelli is 
the cute one on the drums who hides in the back. 
Together they are Hot Tea. 

• Hot Tea began in February of 1976 with "Alexander, 
Finn, Signorelli and Phil Jekanowski on keyboards. After 
obtaining moderate success with the group, he decided 
in February of 78 to go solo and'Alexander's old friend 
from Alabama, Derrel Brown joined the group. 



All the guys have played in successful groups $rior to 
forming Hot Tea. Signorelli was with the Art Thomas 
group a few years back, while Alexander and Finn were 
both with The Distortions. Brown played with Windmill, 
another local group that obtained moderate success in 
the Palm Beaches. 

Although Hot Tea's main line of music is 
rock-and-roll, they manage, in the space of one evening, 
to play everything from disco to jazz with a little slow 
music thrown in so you can hold your loy^doae clo|e. 

They 'play to try and please everyone. On the whole 
they are successful. Their music is usually top forty 
though they are starting to play some original music. 
Alexander is the song writer of the group, however, the 
end result is always a group effort. 

When asked about their music and where they are 
headed, Hot Tea states, "We have a lot of things up in 
the air just now but we are working on some original 
material and hope to cut ah album in the neat future. 

Hot Tea bodgies and is destined to go tar in trie world 
of music. So if you really enjoy a good beatand.some nice 
people, take a chance and go see Hot Tea at the Duchess. 

And if you're in the mood for a laugh, ask "Rock 
Action" how they got the name Hot Tea. The joke is a 
guaranteed laugh and good time.

His gentle sky blue eyes mark 
no contrast to the rest of his 
face. 

For Lord Carnarvon's expres- 
sive face carries with it an air of 
subtlety and charm when he 
recalls both the joyful and 
somber events of his life. 

One such event tinged with 
triumph, sadness and frustra- 
tion . was when' his father's 
employee Howard Carter, 
discovered the tomb of King 
Tutankhamun in The Valley of 
the Kings in Egypt on 
November 20, 1922. 

It was a triumph because the 
discovery of the tomb, filled 
with glittering gold treasures 
that are currently being 
exhibited in Los Angeles, has 
been considered the greatest 
archeolpgical find in history. 

It was sad because his father, 
the late Lord Carnarvon, died 
only several weeks after the 
tomb was opened. 

It was frustrating because the 
Egyptian government did not 
fulfill their promise of granting 
the Carnarvons a replica of 
everything found in the tomb. 

Could it be the curse of King 
.Tut's tomb that caused suclv 
unfortunate and frustrating 
occurrences? 

Lord Carnarvon replies, "I'm 
quite convinced that this story

through clouds is an awe 
inspiring vision of fantasy. 



Back on earth, the story 
concerns the effects a "close 
encounter" has on the life of 
powerline repairman Roy Neary 
(Richard Dreyfuss). 

This "encounter" completely 
frays Neary's life, so much so, 
that his wife (Teri Garr) and 
family leave him. He is left to 
ponder his obsession with his 
vision of the Devil's Tower in

Many psychologists believe 
that early childhood is very 
important in the formation of a 
personality. Despite this know- 
ledge, we are constantly giving 
our children information which 
they perceive incorrectly. 

"Now pick up your toys son, 
the bug man will be 
later to spray." 

The poor kid could have 
waited all day without seeing a 
man who resembled a bug. 

"Your grandmother is going 
to drop over this afternoon." 

The dear lady remained 
standing all day. 

These are only two examples 
of the way a child may view a 
situation simply by taking it 
literally. 

We tend to perceive things by 
relating them to our past 
experiences. Having not ac- 
cumulated a large store of 
information, there is no 
indication that the family is 
taking up canabalism just 
because mother says, "We. are 
having the neighbors for 
dinner." 

How many children go 
through the early stages of life 
with great misconceptions as to 
where things came from? 

Is there really an oversized 
stork who deposits babies which 
he carries in his bill? 

Did some of us really come 
from under a rock? (This one 
may be left to independent 
cases.) 

"Money doesn't grow 
trees." (If not, what does?) 



change the structure of the language they use, 
as children cannot be force-fed the data which 
is required to properly understand this 
dilemma. 



Next time you come home from class and 
are totallyexhausteddon't go and tell your 
little brother or sister "I'm so beat I'll 
probably just die." 



that everybody who had 
anything to do with King Tut 
died from the 'curse' is all 
bologna. I can quote any amount 
of people who had to do with it 
and a lot of them lived to a ripe 
old age and died of natural 
causes." 

Lord Carnarvon's sister, Lady 
Evelyn Beechum, witnessed the 
opening of the tomb alongside 
her father and she is still living. 

However, Lord Carnarvon 
admits to the fact that many 
mysterious things have happen- 
ed in connection with the 
supposed curse which cannot be 
explained. 

A blackout in Cairo, the death 
of his father's fox terrier and his 
father's unexpected death are 
some of the baffling simultan- 
eous happenings that have 
taken place. 

Lord Carnarvon or "Porchey" 
(short for his first name, 
Porchester) as he is called by 
close friends, stresses that the 
curse should instead be 
described as the "alleged curse 
since none of the mysterious 
incidents have definitely been 
proved to be linked with the 
curse of King Tut's resting 
place. 

His father was bitten on the 
face by a mosquito. He shaved 
over the bite and the sore 
became infected by what Lord 
Carnarvon .calls i "dust from the 
desert or the tomb or whatever 
you like." 

"It was really pneumonia my 
father died of in the end," 
claims Lord Carnarvon. 

Following his father's death' 
Lord Carnarvon returned home 
tp Highclere Castle in England. 
Awaiting him there was a 
message instructing him to call

LORD CARNARVON, whose father co-discovered King Tutankhamun's tomb, recently visits friends in 
the Palm Beaches. ' .. 



his father's psychic, Velma, who 
is credited with famous 
predictions, including the 
assasination of the Czar of 
Russia. 

Velma told Lord Carnarvon, 
"I had a long talk with your 
father last night. He said you 
are not to consider going in or 
near the tomb again because if 
you do, great ill will befall you." 

Lord Carnarvon's father 
"warned him and implored 
htm" not to visit the tomb 
because,, at that rtime, Lord 
Carnarvon had no heir. His 
father did not want any harm to 
overcome his son thus risking 
chances for a grandson and heir. 

"I never have gone back to 
the tomb," says Lord Carnar- 
von. "I have never had any 
interest to do so." 

The aura of the alleged curse 
is what, according to Lord 
Carnarvon draws people to. the 
Tut exhibit and tomb. 



"Men and women are excited 
by it and they're wondering 
'Ohhh, what'll happen to me?' 

If you go and your mother 
gets flu or something you'll say, 
human nature, 'Mummy, if I 
hadn't taken you to that blasted 
tomb you would have never 
gotten the flu," jests Lord 
Carnarvon in his aristocratic, 
English accent. 

Lord Carnarvon chuckles 
when he relates warm memories 
of his full and satisfying life. 

However, he did not chuckle 
when. he said, "1 have no happy 
recollections -of all of this. Why 
should I? I find it an 
annoyance." 

He was referring to the 
entanglements, he had with the 
Egyptian government after his 
father's death. 

The government closed the 
tomb after his late Lordship's 
death and would not allow 
Howard Carter re-entrance until 



Lord Carnarvon offered to 
continue financing the excava- 
tion. 

Also, the Egyptian govern- 
ment did not repay a $35,000 
debt to Lord Carnarvon until 
several years ago. 

Furthermore, they did not 
allow the Carnarvons to keep 
any of the treasures or replicas 
of the treasures as they 
promised. 

With no fond memories of 
that, Lord Carnarvon does 
however harbor deep sentimen- 
tal and positive thoughts about 
Carter. 

"I knew him intimately, great 
friend of mine. I like him very 
much... he was scrupuously 
honest. He was a bachelor very 
dedicated to his work, extreme- 
ly!" said Lord Carnarvon, 
peering through the air as 
though Carter were seated right 
before him.

Drama festival pleases crowd 



By Sonny Nyman 
Venture ^Columnist 

If one were to measure the three 
plays given by high school drama clubs 
and two plays by the JC Players in 
terms of the light spectrum, none would 
be less than the radiance of professional 
plays. The acting was colorful and 
creative. 

AH three high school plays, which 
were chosen the best of seven from the 
previous day's Fourth Annual High 
School Drama. Festival, exhibited the 
self-disciplined quality that any 
college drama club would consider an 
advanced collegiate accomplishment. 

The three plays, Suncoast's "Fumed 
Oak," Jupiter's "Not Tonight," • and 
Forest Hill's "Curse You, Jack 
Dalton! " all ironically revolved around 
the institution of marriage. 

In "Fumed Oak," men's liberation 
was the only way out for the henpecked 
husband. And he, tired of his wife and 
her zany mother, finally got the nerve to 
tell his wife what he really thought "of 
the whole rotten situation. 

"Not Tonight" left no one sleeping 
except the cast. The Bellows, a family of 
sleepwalkers, kept the ravishing young 
daughter's boyfriend from proposing to 
her for fear she too was a sleepwalker. 

Little did she know until the very end 
that he was also a slumbering stumbler. 



The family that sleepwalks together 
lived happily ever after. 

The last play "Curse You, Jack 
Dalton!" developed into a complex, 
high society maze of love that definitely 
kept the audience awake. 

Heirs to the great Dalton fortune the 
Golden Giantmine, (you read that right) 
were Jack Dalton and his sister Eloise. 

Jack was to marry Anna Alvarado, a 
greedy woman after the fortune only. 
Eloise, a bouncy Chicklet with a mousy 
personality was to wed the snivelling 
Snidely Whiplash-type character, Eg- 
bert VanHorn. 

- Egbert VanHom : played by Alan Pratt 
who won Best Actor award for the 
evening, was truly the dominant 
character. He was prevented from 
marrying into the fortune before he 
would take over the household in his 
evil way, 

As always, the good guys win and 
they all lived happily ever after. 

Highlighting the evening with two 
special presentations, "When Shake- 
speare's Ladies Meet" and "God," the 
JC Players gave, as they do always, an 
excellent show. 

Bill Woodard student- directed the. 
Charles George adaptation -where 
Shakespeare's ladies all came together 
to explain to love-bitten Juliet that 
romance is little more than a spider's 



trap. Once one gets caught in the web, 
it's all over. 

Naturally Juliet disbelieved her 
love-lorn predecessors only to decide 
that she and Romeo, if they came to a 
sudden end, would go together. 

If Woody Allen had seen what the 
Players did with his play, "God," he 
would have giggled to death. 

Laughter became a contagious 

disease as the cast, Hepatitis (Ross 

Thomas) and Diabetes (Bobby Amor), 

two not-so-ancient Greeks, tried to find 

. an endingfor their play. 

"God" itself had no ending. „ 

From the audience appeared robust 
Doris (Patty Koopman) who aided in the 
nonsensical shenanigans and. a man 
(Greg Kurty) who rose from the 
audience to tell director Gary Lazer his 
play was ridiculous. 

The climax of "God" was the 
appearance of God from Machine, a 
half-ton of welded steel, an 
unsightly-yet-beautiful creation on 
wheels which believed to be God. 

Woody Allen's humor, although 
slightly bent, fit the style of the Players. 
It let them express, as could plainly be 
seen, their love for satire. 

The entire evening was a pleasure 
that gave the capacity crowd and the 
actors an evening to remember.

President Manor 
meets SG officials 



By Patrick Heffernan 
Staff Writer 

Saying that he's proud of the fact that most JC employees who 
retire return as substitutes and in other capacities, JC President Dr. 
Harold Manor told members of the SG senate, "I hope students will 
feel the same type of identity after they graduate." 

The meeting between Manor and the senate was a tradition that 
takes place every year according to SG President Sharon 
Christenbury. ' ' 

In commending the senate for their time in SG and service to the 
college, Manor told them the only way to solve problems is by 
working with other people. 

"1 think bur SG operation is excellent and has wrestled with a lot of 
problems." 

During a brief question and answer period, Sen. Tom Q'Rourke 
asked Manors opinion of a panel discussion between the faculty and 
administration so that students could become better informed. 

Manor replied, "It's not really possible to have one. In collective 
bargaining many things are involved and requires great deal of 
background- unless you go into matter in great depth you can't see 
the problem- at hand. 

"We have great respect for the faculty and administration and 1 
don't believe a panel situation to be fruitful." 

Later in the session Christenbury notified the senate of Fla. senate 
bill 1449. The recently passed legislation provides for a student 
representative to act as a bargaining agent in negotiations between 
the faculty and the administration. The representative can present 
student views to the negotiators and public although he has not vote. 

In making the tennis courts available to more people a tennis lights 
committee has been formed to explore all possibilities of having the 
lights lit after night classes and on weekends. Some senators as well 
as students feel the facilities sit idle especially at night. 

As a service to the student body SG has recently initiated the Buy 
of the Bi-Month at the bookstore, which features wearing' apparel and 
other items that are to be sold at a discount to students. 

In another matter, it was agreed that SG is to buy five concrete 
benches and match every bench bought by other clubs with another. 
The deadline for club's to inform SG of their plans to buy a bench is 
March 8. 

Anyone interested in filing for SG executive board can file starting 
in April 12-19, an+begin campaigning on April 19-26. Elections are 
to be April 25-26. 

The second Multi-campus SG assembly is to take place on March 
29 at 5:00 p.m. in Sc-103 at Glades campus. AH students are invited to 
attend. 

Dean Glynn recognized 




A chicken barbecue took place 
on campus Sunday, March 5 to 
commemorate the retirement of 
Dean of Student Activities, Paul 
J. Glynn, as. well as to earn 
funds for JC activities. 

Benefiting the Circle K club, 
sponsored by the Southside 
Kiwanis of West Palm Beach, 
and the women's Softball team 
at JC, the day was proclaimed 
"Dean Paul J. Glynn Day" by 
the JC alumni association. 

Glynn had flatly refused any 
formal banquets, dinners or 
presentations for his coming 
retirement after 28 years with 
the college. 

Glynn came to JC in 1950, 
when it wasJocated at Morrison 
Field, now Palm Beach 
International Airport, and 
moved with the fledgling 
institution to the Lake Park city 
hall in 1951 when the airbase 
was reactivated during the 
Korean conflict. 

Glynn had been hired by Dr. 
John I. Leonard, JC's first 
full-time president, who assign- 
ed him to the position of Dean of 
the student body, "plus other 
activities." 

These activities included 
athletic director, baseball, 
basketball and golf coach, 
Student Government and Circle 
K advisor, and teaching 
Psychology, Anatomy-physiol- 
ogy, Educational Psycholory, 
and Physical and Health 
education. 

Although he rates himself 
only as a "fair athletic", the 
administrator made all-state in 



football, baseball and basketball 
in New Jersey.

Walkathon 
to be held 

Raising money for Early 
childhood club activities, the 
organization is sponsoring it's 
fifth annual children's walka- 
thon.March 22. 

To take place on the JC tennis 
courts, besides the walkathon a 
flea market and bake sale will be 
held. 

Club President Kay Davis 
said donations for materials to 
be sold at the flea market are 
being collected from 8 a.m. to 4 
p.m. in the early learning 
center. 

Speaking of the bake sale, 
Davis said, "we call it a unique 
bake sale because instead of 
candy and sweets, fresh fruits 
and vegetables" and other low 
sugar items, will be sold in place 
of sweets and confections. 

Referring to this years goal of 
$400, Davis said, "Each year we 
try and gain S50, more than the 
year before," last years total 
was $350. 

Money received will go for 
club activities and improving 
the childrens environment.

PacerSoftball team ready for season 



ByBHIMeeks 
Sports Writer 

A few weeks before his first 
game, Coach Anderson spoke 
about his opponent and his 
team. The Pacer's first 
opponent, Broward Central, has 
a new coach," Bruce Nye. 
Anderson has played with 
Coach Nye and says he's a good 
coach. 

When asked about his own 
ball club he said: "They need a 
little more confidence, to get 
hungry - to want to win." He 
says all the girls are hard 
workers, but that they lack the 
real "killer" instinct which 
needs to be instilled to. win. He 
added that every game is like 



the championship game. 

State this year will be held in 
Orlando during April. Coach 
Anderson feels that there are no 
superstars on his team but, that 
all are stars. He has a strong 
bench, all capable of replacing 
starters. 

Anderson knows mistakes will 
be made. Physical mistakes are 
excusable- everyone misses one 
occasionally. But, mental ones 
have to be ironed out. 

After talking to a few of the 
players they had this to say: 

Debbie Rowell, an outfielder 
from last years team says that 
they have a good team this year 
and that" they are stronger in 
some positions than last year's 



Heidi Hipson, 2nd baseman, 
feels that the team is confident 
and working together. "Every- 
one gives 100%, on good. plays 
everyone congratulates the 
player that made the play." 

Mona Frates, Pitcher, "We 
have a good team and we are 
confident we can win. Everyone 
is 100% behind all the other 
players." Cathy. Kelley, center- 
field says that the team is good 
and the players want to win the 
state championship. But, she 
thinks their opponents will be 
tough. 

Lynne Spruill, 3rd baseman 
adds "We have a good, hard 
working team. If we keep it 
together as a unit we'll take it all 



the way to state. Both coaches, 
Anderson and Williams are 
excellent." 

Laura Pierce, left field, "We 
are the best! We have a good 
defensive ball club, Coaojj^ 
Anderson knows the inside and 
outside of Softball, and Coach 
Williams is always there 
pushing us to help us to get 
better as a team." 

Coach Anderson is pleased 
with his girls, especially Captain 
Melinda Toscano. He first saw 
her" play for a summer league 
Softball team. He then asked her 
to come play for him here at JC 
and she was awarded a 
scholarship. According to An- 
derson, Melinda moved here six 



years ago from Virginia. He 
feels that she is a good all 
around player who knows the 
basics when it comes to Softball. 

Starters for the opening game 
will be 1st Base, Capt. Melinda 
Toscano, 2nd Base Linda 
Walker, 3rd Base Lynne Spruill, 
Short Stop Kim Clarke, Catcher 
Kim Jones, Left field Luara 
Pierce, Short field Rhonda 
Stuart, Centerfield Cathy Kel- 
ley, Rightfield Debbie Rowell 
and-Pitcher Nadine Erb. 



After March 4th's opener, the 
girls have a doubleheader on 
March 6 and another March 7.

Cagers advance in state tourney 



ByBHIMeeks 
Sports Writer 

A confident Pacers basketball team defeated 
defending state champion Pensacola Community 
College 78-74 in the first round of the state 
tournament in Deland. The results of the Pacers 
second round game were not available at press 
time. 

After the taller Pensacola team jumped out to .an 
early lead the Pacers fought back to take a 43-49 
half-time lead. The Pacers leading scorer in the 
game was Sammy Weathersbee with 20 points 
followed by Shack Leonard with 14 points and Bill 
Buchanan with 12 points. 

The Pacers were the surprise team at the district 
playoofs, beating Broward Central 87-86 on a 
Leonard last minute lay-up to advance to the 
semifinals. 



In the semi-final the Pacers overcame a 12 
point deficit with just seven minutes remaining 
and took a 76-62 victory over Miami Dade's New 
World Center. 

The finals pitted the Pacers against conference 
champions Indian River. The Pioneers showed why 
they were the conference champs as they overcame 
a 21 point performance by Buchanan to take the 
game 93-90. 

Other high scorers for the Pacers in the game 
were: Weathersbee with 18 points, Mike Bennett 
with 17 points and 10 points for both Mike Owens 
and Derrick Paul. 

JC was still able to go to the state tournament 
because Indian River could not go as both 
conference, champs and district . tournament 
winners, so the rule in this case is that the 
runner-up in the district tournament goes to state. 



Men show strength in early matches 



By Janice Krieger 
Sports Writer 

Opening 'day for the Pacers 
spelled victory as the men's 
tennis team defeated Indian 
River 6-1 at Fort Pierce. 

The Pacers started the day 
out right as Pacer Gary Trinder 
took the No. 1 singles 6-4, 6-3. 
The only Indian River victory 
came in the No. 2 singles as 
John McGinley lost a close one, 
6-4,7-6. 

That was all Indian River 
would get off the Pacers as JC 



swept through the remaining 
matches. Paul Vishnesky won 
the No. 3 singles 6-4, 7-5. Jose 
Lang then took the No. 4 singles 
6-4, 6-4. Pacer Bob Johnson 
then completed the singles 
sweep by winning the No. 5 
match 6-1, 6-0. 

The Pacers won both doubles 
matches, as Trinder and 
Vishnesky won the first one 6-4, 
2-6, 6-3. Then McGinley and 
Lang took the second doubles 
match 3-6, 6-2, 6-1. 

"I feel we have an excellent 



chance of winning the division 
championship. I think this 
victory shows what we're 
capable of doing," says Coach 
Faquir, 

The next day the Pacers ran 
into tough competition as they 
last 7-2 to Florida International 
University. . 

The only victors for the team 
were Vishnesky and McGinley. 
Vishnesky took the No. 1 singles 
6-4, 5-7, 7-5. Then McGinley 
grabbed a victory in the No. 3 
singles 6-0, 7-5. 



Pacers start strong 

By Paul Jenkins 
Sports Writer 

Despite lack of consistent hitting the baseball team managed to 
defeat Miami Dade North twice at the Falcons field behind the strong 
pitching of John Shrewsberry and Dan Weppner. 

It was the first time in at least four years that the Falcons had lost 
back-to-back games at their home field. 

Outstanding-pitching by Shrewsberry for the last seven innings in a 
16 inning marathon enabled the Pacers to scrape out a 7-6 victory. 

Al Delano singled home Roy Alvarez in the top of the 16th and 
Shrewsberry held on in the bottom of the inning for the win. 

In the second game Weppner struck out 12 over 8 1/3 innings while 
holding Dade North to just one run as the Pacers defeated the Falcons 
2-1. 

Ed Walker scored the first run for the Pacers in the opening inning 
by leading off the game with a triple and scored on a wild pitch. Jeff 
Smith drove in the other run for JC. 

Weppner was relieved in the ninth with one out by Leland Wright 
after having walked two batters. Wright gave up a hit allowing a run 
to score but got out of the inning without any further damage and 
picked up his first save of the year. 

The Pacers are now 2-0 in conference play and 3-0 overall after 
having beaten Florida Bible college. 

"We are looking better all the time," said coach Dusty Rhodes. 
"Our next four games are on the road, if we can win those we will be 
in good shape." 

"Our pitching is excellent, Shrewsberry did an outstanding job and 
Weppner did a heck of a job," said Rhodes. "We just need more 
offense." 

Rhodes has reason to be worried about the teams offense as the 
team's batting average is .215. The leading batter on the club is Jeff 
Smith with a .400 average followed by Walker with a ,286 average. 

Rhodes is right when he says that the pitching is excellent as the 
team has a low 1.46 ERA. Four pitchers on the team have yet to give 
up a run.

Water skiing is one of the

tournament, one must go 
through a rigid series of

Player-coach Gino Jimenez is pleased with the 
team's performance so far. "We did a great job in 
winning our last two games, ' ' he says. 

All of the team's games right now are 
non-league but are good for practice purposes and 
gives the players a preview of what league play will 
be like. "If anyone wants to play we are still 
looking for people," Gino adds.

good," In August, he jumped 
his best yet; 127 feet at the 
Caloose Two-Round Jump in 
Fort Myers. 

He has qualified to enter the 
Nationals in slalom several 
times before, but now at the 
Southern Regionals in Miami, 
Aug. 4-6, he will be competing 



in slalom and jumping to qualify 
for the 78 Nationals. In the 
Regionals he must attain an 
'EP' or Excellent Performance 
rating in the Men 1 (ages 17-24). 

Though he hopes to compete 
in as many as ten tournaments 
this summer, he will stay 
employed where he has worked 
the last two summers, at ski 
instructor Lyle Lee's water-ski 
school in Fort Lauderdale. 
Along with future competition 
he eventually hopes to work in 
Lee's new ski-school at Crystal 
Lake in Pompano. 

As in boxing, the real training 
will come just before the 
summer ski-season begins. To 
train, he concentrates on arm 
and leg work, some running and 
a lot of all around practice 
skiing. "I respect trick skiiers 
because they work the hardest 
of all, but jumpers take the most 
chances and slalom skiers are 
the most beautiful." 

The world record is 180 feet 
off a six-foot jump at 35mph. 
Stumpf, in all tournaments this 
summer, will go at'35mph off a 
five and a half foot jump in the 
Men 1 division. His biggest 
competition in the regionals will 
be Mark Tomberg, last year's 
Florida State Champion and a 
former training partner. 

When asked about possible 
ski competition in future 
Olympics, "Water skiing has its 
own Olympics now, since the 
World Championships existed 
the U.S. has won every overall 
championship ever." 

Winning the Nationals does 
not bring in any grand prizes; 
just a trophy, some exposure, 
and hopefully some endorse- 
ments. "I'll be in tournaments 
until I can't walk," he said, 
"but my ultimate goal is just to 
have fun." He may not have the 
luck, but who needs it?

Golfers capture ninth 

By Sherman Donnelly 
Co-Sports Editor 

The Men's golf team finished in a tie for ninth place, out of 23 
teams, at the Indian River Invitational Feb. 20-21. Ken Green took 
the Medalist honors with a 73-70-143 on the par-72, Roekledge 
Country Club in Cocoa. Green was awarded a framed picture of golf 
master Bobby Jones entitled ' ' Concentration . " 
io? r fo V o ai ' d Communitv College won the tournament with a 
297-298-595 over teams from Florida, Alabama and Georgia JC 
finished with 310-316-626 to share ninth place with Miami-Dade 
North, Umy. of Fla. ■'B' team and Alexander City of Alabama. 

Under Coach Sanculius the team, which includes five sophomores

Pacers take Florida Championship 



by Doug Huges 
and Paul Jenkins 

The Pacers long and hard 
work Finally paid off when the 
cagers rose from a mediocre 
sixth place finish in Division IV 
lo a surprising victory, at the 
suite junior college basketball 



tournament March 4. 

The Pacers stepped over 
Pensacola (defending state 
champions) Seminole and finally 
Florida College in their battle 
for the state title.

It looked as if the Pacers 
would romp to the title in the 
final game wilh Florida College 
Falcons as they led by as much 
as 19 points during the opening 
half. 



However, the Falcons had 
closed that lead to a respectable 
12 points at half-time, and with 
7:44 on the clock trailed by only 
two. The Pacers were unable to 
gain more than a five point lead 
for the rest of the game. 

Falcon William Likely stole 
the ball and scored, to tie the 
game at 85 with 24 seconds 
remaining. 

Pacer Dirk Jamison missed a 
15 fool shot: witli 4 seconds left, 
but Bill Buchanan snagged the 
rebound and scored with a mere 
2 seconds in the game. 

Buchanan, most valuable 
player of the tournament, then 
intercepted a last chance effort 
from Falcon Kenny Moore to 
clinch the game 87-85. 



The resulting scene was one 
of jubilation as Buchanan 
climbed the backboard to cut 
down the net. An. exuberant Dr. 
Ed. Eissey said, "This is the 
best tiling that's happened since 
my kid was born. Can you 
believe this." 

Buchanan, who along with 
Sam Weathersbee was named to 
the all-state basketball team, 
said, "Everybody contributed, 
everybody was doing what they 
did best. I'm not saying we were 
lucky. I think we were quicker 
for having a smaller team." 

The Pacers will now travel to 
Hutchinson, Kansas to compete 
in the National junior college 
tournament. 

Assistant coach Willie Gibson 
said, "The first thing I thought 
about when the buzzer went off 
was when do I start packing."

Ceravolo man behind it all 



by Jim Swan 
Co-editor Sports 

With all the excitement over the Pacers big 
victory, don't forget the man behind the team's 
performance, coach Joe Ceravolo. 

Ceravolo, in his second year here, in bringing 
the Pacers a long awaited state title has obtained 
one of the goals he set for himself when he took 
over the head spot at PBJC. 

This is not his first state title though, as he led 
Twin Lakes high school to the state crown in 1971 . 

Ceravolo attended college at Davis and Elkins in 
West Virginia where he majored in pre-med. 
Unable though to get into Medical school he then 
turned his sights to teaching and coaching. 

Coming to coach at Palm Beach high in 1958 was 
the starting point for his successful career in this 
area. At Palm Beach high, which later became 
Twin Lakes, he led the squad to 7 Suncoast 
Conference titles, 3 district titles, 2 regional 
crowns and one state championship. He also had 
the opportunity of coaching his three sons at the 
school., His son Darryl . was a high school 
All-American and played at the Univ. of Florida. 
His youngest son Joe was also an All-American 
and is currently playing at Southern Methodist 
Univ. 
Ceravolo has been involved in basketball 



coaching for 25 years and has had many exciting 
moments. "I have enjoyed coaching basketball at 
every level from jr. high on up," he says. 

There were doubts about the Pacers chances 
after loosing six players to academic ineligibility. 
The loss may have dampened some people's hopes 
but Ceravolo and the Pacers just kept playing 
all-out basketball. "The team gave its best and 1 
could not expect any more of them," Ceravolo 
adds. 

The state championship should help the school 
in many ways, Ceravolo feels. The added publicity 
should help the school in recruiting for next year 
botli academically and athletically. 

When asked his thoughts about the college 
increasing its format of athletic teams, he stated 
that, "a Junior college must grow with the needs 
and wants of the community." 

The Pacers first opponent in the National 
tournament will be Niagra who is undefeated. 
Ceravolo, who does not like to look too far into the 
future, feels his team will be in every game that 
they play if they play like they are capable of. One 
thing is certain though, the fans back home will be 
pulling for the Pacers and their experienced 
leader.

Two JC members 
seek city positions 

Two persons associated with JC have ventured into the political 
arena by entering the race for membership on the West Palm Beach 
city commission. 

Dr. Robert L. Smith, member of the Board of Trustees (BOT) and 
local dentist, and math instructor Ruby Bullock have entered the 
contest. 

Smith is running in the District two race, Bullock in District one. 
Both have run for their respective positions before and have 
expressed optimism in their chance for victory this time around. 

Bullock, who is retiring from teaching this year, said she is the only 
female running against three men in her area. 

Listing some of her goals and person attributes, Bullock indicated a 
desire to provide the best service possible, promote unity of the city 
and county with the people, show "loyalty to those I serve and 
leadership that is people oriented" labeling herself outgoing, 
concerned, cooperative, kind and knowledgeable. 

Smith's platform includes: 

• correcting parking problems downtown for consumer benefit 

« increasing financial support for additional recreation programs 
geared towards youth and the elderly 

• seeking more and better housing for the aged, indigent and those 
on fixed incomes.

After giving JC students and personnel the 
chance to select the books they found most useful, 
the remainder of the discarded library books on 
sale in the bookstore are available to the public. 

Last week, the books, which are being sold for a 
quarter, were to be sold to only those affiliated 
with the college. The books remaining after, this 
week will be either discarded or donated to the 
public. 

Ranging from poor to good condition, the books 
deal with a wide range of topics and philosophies 
in general and technical fields. 

Initially, the books had been slated for 
immediate disposal or donation when JC President 
Harold Manor came up with the idea of selling the 
books for the nominal sum. 

So far between 500 to 800 books have been sold 
estimates bookstore manager Ruth Brosst. 

"It's amazing how many students have taken 
advantage of this," stated Brosst. 

The revenue from the book sale is estimated to 
be about S150. 

Brosst emphasized that the money from the 
books is not theirs but is to be turned over to the 
general college fund.

By contrast, the athletic

While community support for 



our sports program has 
provided such fringe benefits for 
the players as meal tickets and

scholarships go to replacing the 
scholarships themselves. 

This irresponsibility of the

indefensible. We can not accept 
such frivolous excuses as "you

academic involvement be rated 
over athletic involvement. 

We are asking equal

The Board has now proven 
what an adequate grants-in-aid

the college. Now it is up to them- 
to make JC as well known for its 
cultural achievements as it is for 
its athletic feats.

Dreams are vivid 
Thoughts are hazy 



By Audrey Snow 
Staff Writer 

Ever since the dawn of man, 
dreams have been viewed with 
much interest and superstition. 
Their meaning and cause have 
been the subject of investigation 
by scholars throughout the 
ages. Many ancient and current 
records concerning dreams have 
left little doubt as to the 
importance of dreaming. 

To say you never dream is to 
say you never breathe. For 
dreaming is a natural human 
function. 

Only a minority of people 
recall their dreams vividly. Most 
people remember bits and 
pieces of their dreams while a 
sizable number of people do not 
remember their dreams at all. 

Dream researchers have 
found that some drugs or an 
overindulgence of alcohol are 
the only factors that prevent a 
person from dreaming. 

Everyone dreams at least 
three to nine times in a normal 
eight hours sleep. This has been 
confirmed through measuring 
brain waves, heart action, 
respiration, eye and body 
movements of thousands of 
individuals according to resear- 
chers at Harvard and other 
distinguished institutions. 

Furthermore, scientists have 
found that the congenitally deaf 
and/or blind dream, children as 
young as eight months dream 
and people who have a very low 
IQ dream no less than those who 
have a very' high IQ. 



Dreams and their interpreta- 
tions have been recorded on 
cave walls and stone slabs. 
These dreamers compared notes 
with each other on the 
happenings that followed. This 
began the study of omens, 
prophecies and warnings con- 
tained in dreams. 

Most dreams are usually in 
the form of visual images. 
Scientists believe through these 
visual images we can explore 
the human mind. In a dream, we 
can create a world of limitless 
space and time. 

Dreams capture the most 
intimate experiences. Every 
human emotion or experience 
can be reflected in a dream. The 
emotional intensity of a dream 
can be even more overwhelming 
than reality itself. They bring us 
such refined insight that, upon 
waking, it may be hard for a 
moment to distinguish between 
reality and a dream. 

Dreams can represent a 
warning or a good prophecy or 
even provide a solution to a 
puzzling problem. 

Recent experiments with 
"dream withdrawal" suggest 
that if a man is deprived of his 
dreams he may, in turn, act out 
his psychotic tendencies while 
he's awake. 

This gives rise to the 
hypothesis that dreams allow 
one to go quickly and quietly 
insane. It is possible that sleep 
isn't necessary for our welfare. 
However, dreams are. 

Studies are bing conducted to

DREAMS: Some are as real as night and day.

find out what connection DNA 
(deoxyribonucleic acid) and 
RNA (ribonucleic acid) have 
with our dreams. 

Scientists are not ruling out 
the possibility that DNA and 
RNA may carry in it certain 
types of dreams now classified 
as "clairvoyant," "precogni- 
tive" or "retrocognitive." 

These dreams, based on 
experiences and emotions of the 
dreamer's ancestors, may occur 
to some people by being passed 



down to generations via genetic 
codes. 

Modern psychotherapists are 
beginning to believe that we 
should learn to interpret our 
dreams since they are an 
extention of our own lives and 
environment. 

How are dreams interpreted? 
Well, that's another story. 

There are many books dealing 
with the subject of dream 
interpretation. 

However, there are no sound 



scientific facts denoting a 
specific interpretation for any 
one specific dream. 

Perhaps with future scientific 
investigation, researchers will 
be able to find out exactly why 
we dream and the mental 
benefits that come from the 
interpretation of dreams. 

But for now, let us sleep 
quietly and soundly. For 
tomorrow we may be captializ- 
ing on last night's wild, 
involuntary imagination. 



Genes don 't shrink in the wash 



By Sonny Nyman 
Venture Columnist 

Having the idea forced upon me that I could 
have as many indentical sisters as I wanted, say 
around the year 2000, I have developed a fear of 
being cloned. 

Cloning is a biological discovery that allows a 
living creature to be created from the genes of a 
single body cell. 

With this in mind I wonder what effects, good or 
bad, cloning is to have on lifestyle. 

What identical twins experience, everyone else 
could, but on a more exaggerated scale. 

Imagine if you would no longer have to wish you 
could be in more than one place at a time — or 
wonder what you would come back as after you 
died. 

Just think of the advantages! A corporation 
could act as one person, share the same name and 
save on having to change letterheads on business 
letters in the event of promotion. 

The question of course is, "Why would anyone 
want one-to-infinitum carbon copies of himself?" 

So far, the disadvantages outweigh the 



advantages. 

While Einstein's cloned double might look like 
Einsten right down to the last freckle, he may have 
the intelligence of a cabbage. 

While cliche's and classical phrases like "the 
one and only" will become obsolete, sayings such 
as, "Haven't we met before?" will be confusingly 
overused. 

Can you imagine a clone's birth certificate? Or 
the laws concerning the parent? Laws of all sorts 
would spring up around the parent, marriage and 
its children. 

Take this for example. If a man married a 
woman with one or more "clone" sisters, he could 
cheat on his wife without the neighbors knowing 
and vice versa. 

Family blood-lines would become clone-lines. 
Cloning agencies would mushroom like 
government agencies. 

For now, cloning is left to laboratory rats and 
dabbling biologists. 

So while you have time, think about what you 
would say if you ever met yourself on the street. 



Lord Carnarvon has "No Regrets" about past 



Continued from Last Week 



By Kathy Cavanaugh 
Venture Editor 

Lord Carnarvon did not know 
his father the late Lord 
Carnarvon who co-discovered 
King Tut's Tomb intimately. 

"I hardly knew him because 
the system in those days (early 
1900's) was that little boys 
should be seen and not heard," 
explained Lord Carnarvan. . 

With his voice trailing off and 
his head turned away he added, 
"I had hardly anything to do 
with my father, very little, 
really." 



Lord Carnarvon told of how 
his father was in a serious motor 
car accident in Germany and 
how that accident was indirectly 
responsible for his hiring 
Howard Carter who was 
destined to discover the tomb . 

Doctors suggested his father 
go to a warm climate after the 
accident. Therefore, in 1902 he 
went to Egypt and was 
persuaded by a friend to take up 
archeology to occupy his time. 

The late Lord Carnarvon's 
friend also spoke with him about 
a man who said he was 
convinced he was going to find 
the last remaining tomb of the 
kings in The Valley of the 
Kings. 



Carter was that man. The two 
were introduced the following 
day. 

Carter explained to the late 
Lord Canarvon, "We'll dig 
systematically and I have a 
feeling that sooner or later we'll 
hit on the tomb. ..and if we're 
lucky it will not have been 
robbed. But even if it has been, 
it will still be something to have 
found it!" 

With that, Carter was hired. 

For 20 years they searched 
and searched until one day they 
found it. The discovery that 
fulfilled ' lives, changed lives 
and perhaps even, if the curse is 
a reality, destroyed lives. 



Lord Carnarvon's life was 
most obviously touched by the 
discovery. And although he 
possesses some bitter memories 
of the situations surrounding 
the discovery, he says he has 
"No Regrets." 

That's the title of the book he 
authored two years ago in 
England. 

In it, he comically and 
solemnly shares the story of his 
life. 

Amusing discourses sprinkle 
the pages. One is the time 
when, as a child, he bumped 
into King Edward VII at a 
children's party held in 
Buckingham Palace, and literally 
knocked the King off his feet ! 




Lord Carnarvon 

Now, as a man, Lord 

! Carvarvon sums up all the trials 

and tribulations of his life by 

saying, "We must endure what 

we cannot cure."

schedule at least once. Their 
conference record, though not' 
perfect, is promising as the 
Pacers play in the strongest 
conference in the state. Last 
year Division IV took every 
individual title at the state 
tournament. 

Leading the conference is 
Indian River who gave , the 
Pacers a tough 6-3 setback here 
on March 9. The match, though 
not a boost to the Pacers record, 
did give the team a good look at 
what to expect in state 
competiton as Indian River is 
one of the best. 

Sickness and a couple of 
minor injuries have played" a big 
role in some of the Pacer's 
losses and so Rive is confident 
about his team's chances in the. 
rest of the season. 

Individual records for the 
team show some strength. In 
the No. 1 singles Patti Zoratti 
has a 6-3 record. At No. 2 is 
Martha Arrieta also with a 6-3 
mark. Kim Wishard has a 7-3 
record at the No. 3 spot, 
Jennifer Gold is 4-6 at No. 4, 
Debbie Fung is 2-5 at No. 5 and 
Ann M. Ziaoie is 7-3 at the No. 6 
position. 

In doubles action is where the 
leant Finds its strength. In the 
No. I position the team of . 
Arrieta and Wishard are 7-2. At 
the No. 2 spot the team of 
Zoratti and Gold and the No. 3 
team of Fung and Ziaoie both 



have 7-1 records. 

The state tournament will 
lake place in early April and 
Rive is optimistic about his 
team's chances. The two top 
teams in the tournament will go 
to the National tourney in 
Odessa, Texas. Last year the 
Pacers were . fourth in the 
nationals and Rive is looking 
towards making a return visit'' to 
the tournament this year, 

Team competition for placpig-'' 
in the state tournament involves 
only the First four women in the 
rotation although all six of the 
women can compete for 
individual state titles. 

Rive feels that Patti Zoratti 
and Martha Arrieta should do 
well in the No. 1 and No, 2 
singles spot at state. He is also 
quite optimistic about Kim 
Wishard taking a title in the No. 
3 singles and Ann M, Ziaoie in 
'the No. 6 spot. 

In the doubles, Rive feels 
optimistic forstate titles for the 
teams of Arrieta- Wishard in the 
No. 1 spot and Fung-Ziaoie in 
the No. 3 spot. 

The Pacers also have a 
promising seventh player in 
newcomer Nelita Girbau. 

Rive is pleased with his team 
so far and looks forward to the 
rest of the season. "The girls 
have been working hard since 
the Fall term, which is 
something necessary for a good 
showing at state," he says.

Speaking today 

Former spy foresees police state 




AUTHOR,LECTURER, and ex- 
spy Peter N. James. 



A former aerospace engineer and CIA spy who made allegations of 
corruption in the Air Force and the government is to - give a 
presentation today entitled "The Embryo of an American Police 
State." 

Peter N.' James, author of "The Air Force Mafia" and "Soviet 
Conquest from Space" is to speak in the gym from 9:50 to 10:50 a.m. 
A question and answer session for those interested will follow.in the 
SAC lounge from 11 a.m. to noon. A media interview is scheduled for 
9 a.m. 

Because of his extensive travels in Europe and South America 
attending conferences and meeting foreign scientists and espionage 
agents, James says he became involved with Air Force Intelligence 
and the CIA. 

A rocket engineer with Pratt and Whitney for nine years, he was 
terminated in 1974 upon returning from a trip in Europe -where he 
was threatened with death if ever he published what he knew. James 
says he and his wife were pursued through Yugoslavia, Italy, France 
and Belgium. 

The chase began, he says, when it was discovered that he was 
writing an expose' on what he considered to be questionable activities 
of agents of the Foreign Technology Division, (FTD) of the Air force. 



His book, "The Air Force Mafia" was released in 1975. 

James' expose "led to House and Senate inquiries and the 
curtailment of intelligence operations." 

His allegations that the Air Force releases both secrets of American 
defense contractors and the Russian military to other contractors in 
return for favors and money won the attention of congressional 
investigators. 

Specifically, James charged that the FTD "collects information on 
foreign technology, especially advanced Soviet developments in 
aircraft propulsion and missile technology and exchanges it with U.S. 
aerospace companies involved in counterpart aircraft and 
weaponry." 

Besides keeping busy oh the lecture circuit, James has filed a 
multi-million dollar damage suit in federal court and is now working 
on a Hollywood screenplay of his book. 

Currently, he is organizing students to participate in research 
projects to expose governmental corruption. 

The talk is open to the public, free to students. A $3 donation for 
adults and $1 for children is requested. Classes will be cancelled for 
the program.

CHEESECAKE- These two young ladies, Tania Sigman and Kristen 
Campbell, both 3, want your support as they walk March 22 to raise 
money for the Early Learning Center on JC central. 

Walkathon to highlight 
fund raising festival 

In additon to it's fifth annual children's walkathon, the Early 
Childhood Club is sponsoring a bake sale and flea market to raise 
funds to improve the children's environment. 

The 10 a.m. walkathon will be part of a .festival lasting from 9 a.m. 
to 1 p.m. which will include refreshments, a -flea market, bake sale 
and a fruit and vegetable st and. 

Club President Kay Davis said members of the club are seeking 
people to sponsor one of the 20 children from the Early Learning 
center taking part in Iheevent. 

"Taking place March 22, the children will walk on the JC tennis . 
courts. Each lap equals one-quarter of a mile, he record being 13 
laps or three and a quarter miles completed in 1975, 
' Besides going towards improving the children's environment, the 
proceeds will go for Early Learning Center scholarships and new 

equipment. 

"By adding the Festival to the Walkathon, we re hoping to 
generate more interest in the event from the community," Davis 

The center is a Montessori oriented school attended by the children 
of JC students and faculty members. It serves as a training laboratory 
■ for early childhood education programs on campus and has become a 
model for other schools in the area. 

Last year's total was over $300 and this years goal is $400. 
Expressing optimism about the events outcome, club treasurer 
Averell Dadone, said, "We've got lot's of people contributing and it's 
going to be lots of fun. "• 

More information can be obtained by contacting the center at ext.

Those students living in Florida for two years 
prior to enrolling at JC having a 3.0 grade point 
average and meeting other qualifications are 
eligible for aid from a north Florida foundation. 

The William G. Selby and Marie Selby 
Foundation of Sarasota is offering grants to anyone 
who can meet the following prerequisites: 

• can prove a limited financial capability to afford 
college expenses (the first page of parent's income 
tax report for ' the last two years is required, 
regardless ' of the, applicants dependent of 
independent status)/ 

•be accepted and attend an accredited school as a 
full-time student for the complete award year 
(applications will not be accepted for less than a 
full academic year enrollment) 

• possess a 3.0 or better academic grade point 

Candidates 
get runoff 

by Patrick Heffernan 
Staff Writer 

Math instructor Ruby Bull- 
ock, now facing a runoff election 
with John Metzger March 28 for 
the West Palm Beach city 
commission race in District 1, is 
carefully planning her strategy 
to win that contest. 

Saying, "It's so hard for 
people to go to the polls a 
second time," Bullock is to take 
the simple but strenuous 
campaign tactic - the person to 
person approach. 

"You get more out of hand to 
hand contact than any other 
way," stated Bullock, "but I'll 
still use TV and the other 
media." 

Appearing to be very 
confident." Bullock' '• explained 
■ that she would be contacting 
voters via letters to churches, 
sororities and other' organiza- 
tions. 

Bullock also noted, "I have a 
great campaign manager." 

Although her platform re- - 
mains the same, the instructor 
pointed out that, "1 want to be 
loyal to the people 1 serve and 
'■ have leadership fhat is people 
orientated." 

If elected to the seat her top 
three priorities are: Downtown 
development, assisting firemen 
and police with pay raises, and 
programs initiated for aged. 

Bullock, who ran against 
three other men in the 
predominently white section 
said, "I want to make the

average for the last two years. 

• be a bona fide Florida resident for at least two 

years prior to enrolling. 

Also an American college testing service (ACT) 
and Student Data form (SDF) must be mailed to 
ACT headquarters in Iowa. 

In addition, the student's grade transcripts for at 
least the last two years, plus the already 
mentioned first page of the parent's income tax 
report should be sent to the foundation in Sarasota. 

It is suggested that in order to meet the 
Foundation's April 30 deadline for applications, all 
information should be sent in by April 1 . 

ACT forms arid more detailed instructions, 
which must be followed explicity for aid 
consideration, are available at the Student 
Financial Aid office, Room AD-02.

Sixth avenue a deathtrap 



Now that sixth avenue south in Lake Worth has 
finally been widened, all of us can enjoy a safer 
ride to and from JC's central campus. 

All of us that is except pedestrians and bicyclers. 

The narrow asphalt strip that ran parallel to the 
new four-laner was assumed by many to be a 
bicycle/walking path. 

Imagine the dismay of our self-propelled 
students to find last weekthat the strip was merely 
a foundation for a guardrail. 

Walkers and bikers are left on their own to 
navigate that dangerous section of the highway, 
with it's considerably faster traffic. At night it 
is doubly dangerous, with bikers trying to share 
the unlit road with speeding cars and trucks. 



Pedestrians, on the other hand, must trudge 
along with shoes full of sand and socks covered 
with burrs. 

If the state is serious about both saving energy 
and making this a community college, then it 
would seem propitious that the campus be 
accessible to everyone regardless of their chosen 
mode of transportation. Instead, entrance from the 
south is made dangerous, dirty, and disagreeable 
for anyone not driving an automobile. 

An engineer for the Department of 
Transportation explained that a bike path "wasn't , 
in the contract. Someone should have thought of it 
three years ago." 

We agree- but surely it is not too fate now. 



Defensive driving worthwhile 



•The Defensive Driving course on campus 
Wednesday night's serves as a reminder to JC 
members of the importance of following traffic 
laws. 

A prerequisite for those who have lost their 
license and need to get it reinstated, the impact of 
the S30 cost for the class and the $20 charge for the 
new license diminishes greatly in the light of the 
one night weekly for five weeks which must be 
sacrificed. Each session is four hours long. 

Just about anyone can shrug off $25 here or 
there from an occasional infraction, but few can 
brush off the penalty for getting nabbed for driving 
without a valid driver's license, the result of 
continued violations and not enrolling in the course 



to get it back. 

Few drivers realize that accompanying the 
monetary fine is a point system: twelve points in 
twelve months meaning a thirty day suspension 
twenty four points in twenty four months causing a 
three month suspension. 

Computing the twenty hours, lost by mandatory 
attendance, at the minimum wage over $50 is 
wasted, in addition to insurance increases and the 
initial costs of getting the license and paying for 
the course, total cost $250. 

In Florida, as in most states, it should be 
emphasized that driving is not a right, but a 
pnvelege easy to lose and all too hard to regain 



Campus DJ explains role 



Editor- 
In regard to the article written 
in our school paper, I would like 
to address myself to the student 
body. 

First, I must explain my role 
as D.J. for the campus radio 
station. My job is to bring music 
and campus happenings to the 
student body. I am limited in my 
authority. I can only control the 
style of music and the level of 
sound during "my program 
schedule. Now I feel, NO- I 
know that my programming is in 
a progressive stye and my 
program logs will bear this out. 

Your article refers to the 
music played as "loud rock 
music" and you add that 
"people whose taste runs 
counter to the daily blast of rock 
and music are compelled to 



letter ) 



study and eat elsewhere." 

Apparently you do not. listen 
to my programs! 

My time spot is from 8:40 - 
9:30 M.W.F. and I try to play 
mellow music that will not jar 
. the student awake. 

I select my music from some 
of the best male and female 
artists that fall into this category 
i.e. Cat Stevens.C.S.N., Dan 
Fogelberg, etc. the list goes on. 
Also, everytime I go on the 
air, I ask for requests and rarely 
do I get them. Now if the 
students don't come over and 
make requests for music they 



would like to hear, I don't feel 
like they have a right to 
complain. They, the students, 
are given the opportunity to 
listen to and make requests for 
anything they would like to 
hear. 

Frankly, I wish the students 
would come over and request 
music because it would make 
tny job that much easier! 
Without requests, I have to play 
music that I feel would appeal to 
the majority of students. 

So- from now on, please 
research a subject before you 
print such a scathing article - in 
other words, get your facts 
straight before you condemn 
everyone because of the actions 
of a few, 

JeffSchooley

U F-adm in is tration 
provide education 

Union decertification voting should put to rest for all times any 
doubt how the majority of instructors feel about being rep ! esented bv 
United Faculty (UF). 

President Elect Dr. Ed Eissey circulated a letter stating he would 
not try to influence voting either way. This seemed to be an unofficial 
letter, with an informal "Ed" signature, rather than speaking from 
his position as an oncoming president. 

Dr. Harold Manor, president, if we understood correctly, decided it 
made no difference how the vote went, as far as his course of action 
was concerned. He feels he can handle the situation either with or 
without UF. 

There seems to have been little or no real communication before or 
after the union became part of the situation. There is no reason to 
think that any agreement would be possible whatever the outcome of 
this past election. Dr. Manor seems to be right-nothing makes any 
difference. 
Some of the toughest issues under discussion may never be 
J resolved to everyone's complete satisfaction. The salary increase 
issue remains sensitive, the no-compromise stance on both sides 
maintains the stalemate. 

The new ranking system also faces rough going. Faculty claims this 
is an upper-level practice not suitable for a community college. It 
"Iocks-in" teachers at various levels with little or no hope of 
promotion. For administration, it is used as a device to stabilize 
payroll and personnel structures. 

By the time our students leave this little world of education, they 
will be well-versed in the order and conduct of our society. 
Admin istration-UF have created a real learning experience. It is not 
exactly what we came to learn about, but if this is what life is really 
like, th en we will know the truth . 

Learning to leorn 

General education designed to give students a broad range of skills 
.is-a "disaster area" at most U.S. colleges, with English and math 
particularly neglected, according to t'he December 77 report from 
Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. ' 

"'Learning how to learn is one of the best investments... for an 
effective life," the report concluded. 

However, students are more and more taking either a loose variety 
of electives or required to take a very narrow range of courses in their 
major subject. Liberal education is not pursued for general education. 

Further skills, such as using library sources, statistics and foreign 
languages often are simply ignored. Some departments, especiallyln 
.sciences and certain professions, are so demanding timewise, that 
general education is eliminated. 

EnriSf Shi C "" eg T e t StUdentS " eed remedial or basic ma ™ and 
nnt g 2' a , , U " lvers,ty tests in 1975 showe d 26 percent had 
no learned high school math and 30 ■ percent did not have 
college-level writing skills.- not nave 

The Foundation recommended work-study programs to integrate 
education with the world of work. 

This situation is occurring on our local scene, with remedial courses 
scheduled regularly at JC. 

The public school system, our feeder schools, has not shown any- 
impressive progress toward solving the problem of too many students 
not learning. No institution can be better than its individuals. It is as 
good or as bad as the people in it. 

The Carnegie report represents 2Vi years of intense surveys, 
studies and on-site analyses. It has proven what has been suspected 
toralong while. Education has, in fact, become a disaster area.

Faculty artworks displayed 



Proving that instructors have 
other talents besides teaching, 
an array of art works done by 
faculty members is on display in 
the Humanities building gallery 
through March 24. 

The works encompass a wide 
variety of medium ranging from 
an oil painting of potted flowers 
to a box-like apparatus 
supplying a three dimensional 
image. 

Specifically, some of the more 
bizarre works in the display 



include pieces of copper pipe 
welded together and perched on 
a pedestal, and two electrical 
contrivances which when turned 
on gave a Three-D perspective. 

Another interesting work is 
piece of multihued carpet. with 
tassels protruding from it. A few 
of the works have been on 
display on campus previously. 

An exhibition of a different 
nature is currently on display in 
the library display case on the 
second floor. 




Examples of the various types 
of book binding as used ' in 
different periods of history are 
shown including one' type of 
binding that was used during 
.the middle ages. 

While the books were made in 
recent years, the methods and 
designs of earlier times are 
used. 

One book in the collection 
combines "blind" tooling with 
engraved strips o-S^gilded 
decoration and panel stamping 
as used in the 15th century in 
Spain, showing moorish influ- 
ence. 

Another type shown is a 
design of interlacing strapwork, 
typical of the work' done in Paris 
during the reign of Francis II. 
Two books in the display are of 
the type of design popular in the 
, later Victorian period and 
the Belle Epoque in France, 
England and the US. ...- . 

Consisting of eight books in 
total, the works are owned by 
Faculty Services Librarian 
Benjamin S: Roberts.

New CJ building 
hears completion 

The new multipurpose Criminal Justice Building, which began 
construction last fall, isnearing completion and will soon be ready for 
use. 

Frank Hoofnagle, superintendant of construction, said, "It won't 
be long at all, we're working on the air conditioning now, we have to 
polish the floors and we're waiting for the bleachers." 

Movable bleachers and chairs that can be stacked to conserve 
space will be an intergral part of the facility. 

Larry Tuttle, Law Enforcement Department Chairman said that the 
new facility will have more than one purpose. 

"It will make room for demonstrations, workshops, training 
sessions... you can drive a vehicle right in for teaching search and 
seizure procedures and how to get someone out.. it's got closed circuit 
television, a self defense area with mats, lockers and showers (for 
both sexes) and exercise facilities," he said. 

"It gives us a building of our own where we can exercise without 
infringing upon student activities. In the past we've used the police 
facilities downtown, 'it's much more convenient." 

Although the new building is expected to be approved by the 
college in the next few weeks, it probably will not begin to be used 
until next fall, unless it is ready for use when the next law 
enforcement classes begin early next month, 

Tuttle estimated the cost at $176,000 for the building, which has 
room for a lecture facility capable of holding 200 people. 

A tour of JC's present facilities reveals first rate equipment 
including an extensive photography and crime investigation 
laboratory. Grimly realistic mock ups of actual crime scenes are an 
intrinsic part of the training. 

"You name it, we've got it," said Tuttle, "A crime lab facility, we 
teach how to give breathalizer tests, lift finger prints and make bomb 
investigations. We even teach photography so an officer knows how 
to preserve evidence and photograph it. " 

"We're just doing our job," said Tuttle.

Night course examines 
perspectives on death 



Death, everyone's ultimate 
outcome, is to be discussed in a 
ten-week course starting March 
29. 

Besides being for the general 
public, the course "Perspect- 
ives in Death", is designed for 
those in the field of Allied 
Health and Human Service, 
nurses, physicians, funeral 
directors, educators, counselors 
and social workers. 

The purpose of the course is 
to introduce students, profess- 
ionals and other interested 
persons to some of the critical 
dimensions of death and dying 
in their person lives and in 
society. 

Seeking a careful balance 
between the academic and the 
practical, the course will deal 
with the ultimate as well as the - 
practical questions of death and 
dying. 



Topics to be discussed 
include: Why a course on 
death?, the pornography of 
death in the midst of life, 
funerals, the terminally, ill, 
suicide, anticipated death, 
death and grief, death and 
religion and death and the right 
to die. 

The course will be taught by 
Instructor Steven Godby, who 
has a Bachelors Degree "in 
philosophy and Religion and a 
Masters degree in Humanities 
and Religion from Florida State 
University. 

Advance registration may be 
made through the Office of

Book bargains cease 
as orchid sale starts 

A thousand orchids donated to JC by a nursery no longer in 
business go on sale today for $2 each in the Physical Plant Building 
located behind the gymnasium. 

Being held from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. through March 23, the sale of 
the flowers was initially to be to only one buyer, in one consignment, 
for 75 cents each. 

However, JC President Dr. Harold Manor decided to sell them to 
the public. 

Dr. G. Tony Tate, vice president, of business affairs, said "Last 
year, when McKeral's Orchid Range in Hypoluxo sold their business, 
they contacted Dr. Ed Eissey, President-elect, about donating trees 
to campus beautification in addition to about a thousand orchid 
plants. 

"It was later determined that the orchids could not be utilized in 
the campus beautification program and that they would be sold with 
the proceeds going toward the purchase of other plant materials 
which can be utilized." 

On other revenue gaining moves on campus, a book sale of 
discarded library books end today. Over 2,000 books were on sale, 
mainly purchased by students and faculty though the sale was opened 
to the public the last week of the three week sale. 

Rugh Brofft, bookstore manager, said, "It's amazing how many 
faculty members and students have taken advantage of the sale. " 

Bookstore evening employee Alice Johnson estimated that as many 
as half of the books were sold though she wasn't certain. 

At a cost of 25 cents per book, that would mean that $250 was 
gained. The money is to go into the college's general fund. 

Brofft credited Social Science Instructor Rosiland * Kochel with 
making more purchases than any other one person . 



Alcoholic Beverages and Tobac- 
co (DABT) were also represent- 
ed in the class. 

The top graduate, with an 
average of 98.9, was David 
William Shomers from DABT. 
Shomers was presented a book 
on Law Enforcement by Law 
Enforcement Dept. Head Larry 
Tuttle. 

Guest Speaker Judge John R. 
Beranek, Chief Judge of the 
15th Judicial Circuit, told the 42 
men and the four women that 
police work has changed greatly 
in the past 20 years. 

"No longer does a person 
simply, become a copy," 
Beranek said. "It's a career, a 
profession. It's my experience 
that law enforcement agencies 
are getting better and better, 
with more and more educa- 
tion." 

"The whole question of 
rhetoric or jargon in terms of 'a 
person in for life' and 'crime not 
paying' has little to do with 
reality. . ^ 

"A person'is sentenced to ten 
years and we know he won't 
stay for ten years," he pointed 
out. 

The speaker added that the 
Constitution has put the courts 
into law enforcement at an early 
sjage . . . and sometimes "puts 
police in some sort of contest 
with the courts ... but judges 
are unquestionably the same 
kind of people you are. " 

"There are times when a 
judge acts to suppress evidence 
which police have worked hard 
to get . . . and there are times he 
would like to use this evidence" 
but the law prevents it, he 
explained.

This review is being written as a 
memorial to the most notorious band 
since the Rolling Stones — The Sex 
Pistols. 

The latest report from "punk" camp 
is that the Pistols have indeed broken 
up, but again this could be another 
tactic in their strangely constructed yet 
brilliantly effective promotional cam- 
paign. 

This "media blitz" can be broken 
down thus: 

• full color features in Newsweek and 
Time. 

• a cover and feature story in Rolling 
Stone magazine. 

• segments on all three network news 
programs.

with their visa denials, concerts and the

• a mention in Johnny Carson's 
monologue about their breiikuj) (hiclv 
incidentally, drew cheers and applause 
from the audience. 

All of this was great copy and altime 
for the hoopla-hungry band. 

Now, let's get on to the album in 
question entitled "Never Mind the. 
Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pislils." 
Technically it is extremely .well 
produced and mixed, leading somtfans 
and critics to believe that it is too 
smooth and polished to be lermcdtrue 
"punk rock". '* 

Musically, the members executelhelr 
limited playing ability surprisinglyrell. 
Paul Cook's powerhouse drummitjand 
Steve Jones' whiplash guitar style 
shows potential, but the bass plipg of 
.overdoser Sid Vicious leaves a loilo be

if nothing else. * •'*' 

The whining and snarling of lead 
punk, Johnny Rotten, grabs (orrther 
assaults) listeners ears. His vole is 
apalling and he often totally missis the 
note he attempts to sing. 

However, his phrasing, infleclimand 
lyrics are, at times, very effective, 

When he spits out4yries lilce , "fa so 

-lazy, or "God save the Qu«a* ( ,w<? 

really need it/man," he leaves noibubt 

as to what hi£ feelings are— defialand 

disgusted./ 

-Qfthe 12 songs on the album, only,six 
of them are worth speaking about. 
"Holidays in the Sun," "Anarchylithe 
U.K." and "God Save the Queen," the 
groups three biggest British hits, are 
biting, highly critical commentaries an? 
the royalty system and economic 
situation in England. 



Next in line are the 



songs 



"Seventeen" and "Pretty Vacant, " 
■ both of these sum up the sentiments of 
the punk movement. 

liMI, the last cut, is a song mocking 
the record company that first signed the 
Pistols and then dropped them after the 
group's infamous appearance on a 
British TV show. 

This album has sold around 250,000 
copies in the States alone, which is a 
respectable figure considering that the 
punk movement has not and probably 
will not have a great impact on 
American teenagers. 

One should consider the environment 
from which the Sex Pistols and the punk 
movement emerged. 

Lower class kids were the first to pick 
up on (he violent, agressive style of the 
group. Also, these same teens were 
caught up in the plummeting English 
economy and^ most of them were 
unemployed on top of that. Therefore, 
they had to find a way to vent their 
frustration. This frustration evolved into 
bizarre make-up and dress styles of 
tattered clothing and safety pins. 

Punk concerts are banned in many 
British concert halls because of the 
violence and mayhem, caused by 
over-enthusiastic punk fans. 

In fact, the most recent Sex Pistols 
tour in England consisted of only four 
concerts. They had originally scheduled 
16 shows, however, these were all 
cancelled by the city fathers after they 
received word of the group's and their 
fans bad reputation for violence. 

Media "overkill" hajs pretty much 
put a damper on the punk scene. It was 
becoming chic to be a punk. 
Corporations were putting big money 
.into punk merchandise that defeated 
the whole purpose ofjhe- movement 
which was rejection of the system- any 
system. 

The Sex Pistols have proved one 
thing, though, that anything and 
everything can be promoted. Even four 
working-class youths, whose main 
purpose is music was to inject fresh 
blood into a .tired, formularized 
recording industry, can be promoted to 
success. s 

Ironically, the Pistols became part of a 
formula- the formula of "hyped" 
success. 





Foreign student 
leaves Lebanon 

by Gunda Caldwell 
Assoc. Editor-Editorial 

JC plays host to many students each year. Last fall, for instance, 
wc had 52 students enrolled with foreign visas. These young people 
come from homes in every part of the globe. They are propsective 
world leaders of the future. 

We have a unique opportunity to increase world understanding 
and friendship through our contacts with these special visitors. 
Friends we make here today can work with us tomorrow to build a 
stable world peace. 

It took courage for 22-year-old Sabeh Chalhoub, one of our foreign 
students, to leave his family home in Jounich, Lebanon. When he 
enrolled in January of 1977 he could hardly speak or understand 
English. . 

His instructors were surprised with his rapid learning skills. 
Making a "B" average in a business administration "major is a good 
record for anyone, With a language handicap it becomes an even 
greater achievement. 

Chalhoub is well-adjusted, with a ready smile and friendly air. He 
enjoys soccer, volleyball, swimming, baseball on TV and art. He does 
oil painting and he especially enjoys painting faces. 

Speaking of his native country, Chalhoub stated, "Tourism is an 
all-year activity, not seasonal like it is here. Oil refining is another big 
business for Lebanon." >

Sabeh Chalhoub of Jounich, Lebanon 

Living close to Beruit, he can swim in the Mediterranean Sea, 
which is only about a mile from his home, and vacation in the 
mountains on the opposite side. Weather averages about 85 degrees 
in summer with low humidity.' It is no wonder that tourists flock there 
year-i'ound. 

The thing Chalhoub finds most surprising is "the great freedom 
young people in America have, they are very independent of family . ' ' 

Next fall he will be back on campus, hard at work, expanding his 
knowledge of English and business practices. 

Much. as he is enjoying. his stay in this country, home and family 
ties are strong. When school is out, Chalhoub plans to visit Paris for 
two weeks before going home for the summer. 

He will take back with him a first-hand knowledge and love of 
America, an authentic picture of the great melting pot we are, With 
our diverse cultures and backgrounds, he may very well feel that he, 
too, has become part of this multi-society we call United States. 

One thing he knows, he will never forget the years spent here 'nor 
the friends he has acquired. 



Winter chill is gone and spring comes 



By Sonny INyman 
Venture Columnist 

My fingers have thawed and 
all six of my winter colds have 
been given to others. My winter 
clothes are back in moth balls 
and the Contac has retired to the 
third shelf of the medicine 
cabinet. 

Ah yes, spring is bouncing 
out all over. What else can you 
say about spring besides that it 
is the time for blossoms of love 
to burst forth from, the bud of 
lust? Many things, friend, many 
things. 

You surely were itching to get 
out of your angora sweater and 
back into shoes'witnout socks. 

Your face turned toward the 
sun and away from the heater 
and your thoughts toward 
"what wonder and expectation 
there would be in all hearts to 
behold the miraculous change!" 
as Henry Wadsworth Longfel- 
low professes. 

Winter started growing on my 
nerves like mold oh cheese and 
it was high time the weather 
started behaving like rational 
weather should - like I want it 
to. 

Not to say, of course, that we 
suffered greatly during those 
slightly frequent cold snaps 
betweenDecember and the first 




week in March. 

Tears rolled down the cheeks 
of many a sunworshipper only to 
have them freeze midway 
between the eyes and the 
swimsuit which lay like a 
hibernating weasle in the 
drawer. . 

All weasels are back and 
frolicking on the beach whilst 
their white coats turn to brown. 

Spring is also a time to 
regather lost hope. Hopes that 
yon may drive with the windows 
down or sweat without having to 
jog a couple of miles are soon 
back where they started last 
spring. 

If anyone could sum up spring 
better it would have to be the 
sentimental poet Alfred Hous- 
man whose poems represent the 
height of the spring season that 
for one's elusive dreams search. 
As two men peer through the 
rain washed window from a 
balcony tavern disgusted that a 
spring day be washed by tides of 
rain, one turns to the other and 
poetically verses: 

"The chestnut cast his 
flambeaux, and the flowers/- 
Stream fr6m the hawthorn on 
the wind away, /The doors clap 
to, the pane is blind with 
showers. /Pass me the can, lad; 
there's an end of May." 



Do not be struck down with spring fever 



origin wi th thepoL*fel f ce , I!lf '" ?t B °y n<0 " »«»"»« complex. All beads are of European 

pHott of *h* gold tube bead [at top] which is probably Mayan.

Venture Columnist 

Spring is traditionally the time of year when the thoughts and 
desires of young people turn to romance. 

Many people find the socially oriented art of courting to be 
confusing and perhaps even a little difficult. 

Here are a few 'things to do and a few not to do in the pursuit of 
happiness in romance. 

Success in dating is totally reliant upon making a good impression 
with your partner'. This is not as hard to do as it seems. 

First of all, relax. Don't be nervous; or at least don't look nervous. 

There js something peculiar about being in a cozy spot with 
someone and having your teeth chatter. 

A good way to impress someone is to show them your good points. 
Let them see your interests so you can cultivate similar pursuits. 

If you are a musician you might want to serenade your friend. One 
watch word* in this area is to choose your instruments carefully. There 
is nothing at all charming about a half-hour solo on the tuba. 

Some interests do not easily lend themselves to the art of love. If 



you are a taxidermist or a mortician you may have a little difficulty in 
conversation. 

You should plan your attire in strict accordance with the date. It is 
not recommended, for instance, to try and spend an evening of 
tenderness at Taboo while dressedih your scuba gear. 

There is an unwritten code of ethics regarding the use of the 
telephone. Never call someone to ask for a first date at four in the 
morning. Also, never try to get a date from someone by calling them 
at their boyfriend's house. 

When dining at a fine restaurant, refrain from ordering Boone's 
Farm strawberry wine as a complement to steak or fine fish dinners. 

It is also somewhat out of taste to go to a drugstore luncheonette for 
a snack and insist upon a doggie bag. 

If you go to a drive-in movie on a cold evening it is often frowned 
upon to close the car windows for warmth and smoke cuban cigars. 

The art of courting is ruled by a set of unwritten social standards. 
These are simple laws and their knowledge and use will provide you 
and your date with a more fulfilling and enjoyable time.

SGtp make lighting appeal 



By Patrick Heffeman 
Staff Writer 

A proposal to keep the lights 
on at the JC tennis courts to 10 
pm Sunday through Wednesday 
is to be proposed to Dr. G. Tony 
Tate, vice-president of business 
affairs, this week by ati SG 
senate committee . 

The recommendation is an 
alteration to an earlier bid by SG 
,JXMsmploy.the lights to 11. pm. 
seven days a week. Because of 
the tremendous cost involved 
that motion was changed. 

At that time the figures for 
such an operation from Dr 
Tate's office were revealed by 
Sen. Mike Lanigan, who heads 
the tennis lights committee. The 
figures indicated it would take 
1,356 hours to be lit a year, 
lamps would have to be replaced 
every 1,500 hours at '31,100 
adding up to a yearly utility bill 
of$7,800, 



During Wednesday's SG 
senate meeting three ways were 
brought up as to how to fund the 
project. These involved being 
funded for by school, SG 
financing it and college and SG 
splitting the cost. 

In- another SG matter five 
associate^., justices have been 
appointed" to the Judicial 
Branch. They are: Tom Taylor, 
Lisa Borbonus, Doug Hughes 
Jim Goodman and Maria 
Sardinas. Just two more slots on 
the judiciary remain and are 
expected to be filled soon. 

In order to accomodate 
i student's studying needs and to 
dress up the campus SG, has 
purchased seven concrete ben- 
ches with two campus clubs 
buying one apiece too. Now 
announces SG students wishing 
to buy a bench with their own 
name on it can do so. The cost is 
$17.00 plus $1.00 for engraving 
each letter. The deadline for 



people to inform SG of them 
purchasing a bench is March 24. 

Also announced by SG are the 
service scholarships to be given 
to graduating sophomores. A 
limited number of these will be 
given. These scholarships are 
based on service to the college 
and not on academic criteria. 
Deadline for filing is April 24, 
'78. 

In another SG calendar date 
those interested in filing for 
positions on the SG executive 
board can start filing April 
12-19, and campaigning April * 
19-26. Elections are April 25 and 
26.

A campus organization that 
parallels its interests and 
activities with the curriculum of 
the Hotel-Food Service depart- 
ment has undergone a name 
change this term. 

Bed and Bread (BnB), 
formerly called Bread and 
Board, has a new emphasis. 
Instead of acknowledging just : 
the Food Service Management, 
it now puts accent on the 
Hotel-Food section. 

Bed and . Bread President 
Mike Lanigan said, "With 
Bread and Board it just 
pertained to the Food Service 
but the the new name of Bed 
and Bread it refers to Hotel 
Science and Food Service." 

One of the less known but 
faster growing clubs at JC, it 
provides students with inval- 
uable experience in their chosen 
field - the hotel and food 
industry. 

"To familiarize students with 
the trade more than their 
classes do," is the purpose of 
the organization, said Lanigan. 

Members of the association 
gain practical experience in 
catering to parties, quality food 
preparation and experience in 



serving people. Also they 
acquire training in hotel 
procedures. 

But one of the basic 
ingredients a student gets by 
being involved in the affiliation 
is the fun you have on trips and 
conventions such as the one 
they had in Miami earlier this 
.year. At the end of this term the 
group will go to Sebastian for a 
club party. / 

The club, which is also open 
to non-majors, meets every 
Wednesday at 1:30 in SC-15.

Pacer Caqers' dream still staying alive 



ByJimSwann 
Co-Editor Sports 

The Pacer's dream of a national 
championship came to an end Tuesday 
March 14, as they lost 79-72 to Niagara 
Community College. 

Despite the loss, the magic year is still 
alive as the Pacers moved in to the 
consolation bracket where they won their 
first game 68-58 over Mesa Ariz. 

Palm Beach did not play it's type of 
game against Niagara as they took bad 
shots and did execute with the 
near-perfection that enabled them to win 
the state title. "We L.Jn't execute, we 
took bad shots, we're not that kind of 
team," said coach Joe Ceravolo. 

Niagara was cold in the first half and 
this enabled the Pacers to grab a 33-23 
lead midway through the half. After that 
it was the Pacers turn at cold shooting 



and their lead dwindled down to 43-39 at 
halftime. 

"When we got that lead we started 
taking bad shots , " Ceravolo said. 

"If we had played our game when we 
got that lead, we would have blown them 
away," said assistant coach Willie 
Gibson. 

Niagara was in foul trouble most of the 
night and had three players foul out, 
something the Pacers could not afford to 
have happen to them. Niagara boasted a 
deep bench though and this coupled with 
Michael Lyles 24 points enabled the 
undefeated Frontiersman to advance in 
the tournament. 

The Pacers had four men in double 
figures but just could not take advantage 
of the breaks Niagara gave them. 

Mike Bennett led the team with 20 
points. He was followed by Sam 



Weathersbee with 18, Derrick Paul had 
13 and Bill Buchanan added 10. 

The Pacers prolonged their stay in 
Kansas as they defeated Mesa, Ariz. 
68-58 on Thurs. March 16. 

They still did not execute as well as 
they are capable of doing though. "I 
don't know what it was, we were just 
standing around, said Ceravolo. 

Trailing 35-30 at the half, the Pacers 
came out tough in the second half. With 
nine minutes to play in the game they had 
taken a 54-47 lead. 

Mesa had a lot of foul trouble and this 
was a big factor in the Pacer's win. The 
team was 30 out of 40 from the foul line 
and this contributed a lot of the points the 
Pacers needed. 

It was not a great performance by the 
Pacers but like coach Gibson said, "It's 
sure nice to be a winner. ' ' 



After press time the Pacers were 
scheduled to play North Idaho on Fri. 
March 17, and' the winner of this game 
would then play Sat. March 18 for 9th 
place in the tournament. 

One thing is certain though, ~- the 
Pacers have found many fans in the 
community of Hutchinson, Kansas. 
Reports from this area say that there are 
a lot of basketball fans there in that 
community of 40,000 people and many of 
them are rooting for the Pacers. It seems 
the fans see the Pacers as somewhat of an 
underdog in the tournament and want 
them to go as far as possible. 

It seems a shame that the Pacers did 
not receive as much fan support during 
the season when they were home. Maybe 
in the future they will get the full 
recognition that a team that is among the 
nation's 16 best deserves.

Pacers sharing a first place tie 



By Paul Jenkins 
Sportswriter 

While the baseball team could only manage a 
lackluster 2-2 conference record over the past week 
it was good enough to keep them tied for first place 
with Miami-Dade South. . ■■ 

Bill Castelli provided the highlight of the week 
by setting a school record with nine consecutive 
base hits. This achievement put his season batting 
average at a team high .385. 

Dan Weppner fired a three hitter against Dade 
South in the opening game, of a two series leading 
the Pacers to a 10-1 victory. 

The victory put the Pacers into sole possession of 
first place, however, Dade South snapped back the 
following day to take a 7-1 decision in ten innings, 
tying the teams for first with identical 5-3 
conference records. 

In the first game against the Jaguars, John 
Gagnon went two for four with a homer and four 
RBI . Castelli set the record during the game with 
two doubles and a single in his first three trips to 
the plate. Jeff Smith and Craig Gero both cracked 
solo homers in the game. 

In the second game John Shrewsbeffy shut out 
the Jaguars on six hits over the first eight innings 
as the Pacers appeared ready to extend their lead 
in the conference. 

It was not to be, Dade South touched reliever 
Lelarid W.right for the tying run in the ninth inning 



then put the game away in the tenth by exploding 
for six runs. 

The Pacers split a two game series with Broward 
in Ft. Lauderdale as Broward won the first game 
9-6 after taking a 6-0 lead in the first inning. 

JC took the second game 6-3 behind the bats of 
Ed Walker, who went four for five, and Castelli, 
who went three for three with two RBL . Bob 
Garris picked up the win. 

Dwight Tidwell threw a five hitter and Joe Siers 
hurled a three hitter as the Pacers won a pair of 
games off visiting Wilmington College by scores of 
12-0 and 22-1. The Pacers overall record now 
stands at 9-3. 

"We are just starting to play up to our 
potential," said coach Dusty Rhodes. "But," he 
cautioned, "we can't let up, if we let up we'll be in 
trouble, this is a tough division." 

"Our hitting has started to come around^" 
Rhodes said. "Walker, Castelli, Gagnon and Smith 
have been carrying us. Shrewsberry is one of the 
top pitchers in the state and Weppner has been 
doing well." 

Another standout for the Pacers is Tidwell who 
has yet to give up an earned run. In fact, the 
Pacers have an incredible team ERA of 1.89. 

At the beginning of the season it looked as if lack 
of consistent hitting could hurt the Pacers but they 
have raised the team average to a blistering .282.

The Pacers crushed Miami-Dade New World Center 19-3, 19-3 in a 
twin bill played at Miami, raising their record to 9-3. The Girls then 
split a doubleheader with Browards Trotters. 

They lost the first one in a close contest 2-1. Pitcher Mona Frates 
gave up eight hits to the Trotters, The Pacers tagged the Trotters 
pitcher for nine hits but they couldn't come up with the runs. 

Linda Walker led the Pacers with a double and a single, followed by 
Melinda Toscano's double. Pacers then came back to batter Broward 
for 14 hits as they won the second game, 11-3. 

Pitcher Nadine Erb gave up just nine hits to Broward batters. 

Melinda Toscano led the team with a triple, a double.and a single. 

Lynne Spruill also smashed a triple. Doubles and singles from 
Clarke, Kelley, Pierce, and Stuart rounded out the hitting spree for 

the Pnccrs 

The girls were defeated later by FIU by scores of 10-1 and 7-3. 

In the first game, FIU blasted 17 hits in an error filled contest. 

Pacers nailed the opposing pitcher for 1 1 hits, but it wasn't enough 
as the only incoming run was from Kim Clarke's solo homer. 

Two outstanding field plays early in the ball game were made by 
Kim Clarke at shortstop on a deep put out and a line drive snag by 
first baseman Bambi Toscano. 

The second game was almost a duplicate of the first as Flu 
collected 16 hits and seven runs to the Pacers eleven hits and three 



runs. 



Bambi Toscano led the Pacers with a homer and a triple followed by 
Kim Clarke and Cathy Kelley with three singles apiece. Rhonda 
"Hondo" Stuart was next with two singles while Kim Jones and 
Luara Pierce collected one single apiece.

Men's tennis team is pushing on tight with a 
high winning streak of six wins one loss, as of 
March 14. 

Pacers third game was played Feb. 28 against 
Miami Dade North in which they won. 

The next game constituted the first loss for the 
team which was a home game with Edison 
Community College. Coach Hamid Faquir was 
unable to attend the game thus leaving the team 
defeated when Edisons' coach defaulted two Pacer 
players. Pacers should have taken the game 5-2 if 
this "mysterious" default had not been called. 
Pacers are scheduled to play Edison again which 
ranks as an important scrimmage. 

All player scores were 6-0 when they took Morris 
Harvey College of Va. 9-0. . 

The following day the Pacers continued to win as 
they defeated Broward North 7-0 # 

March 14 brought another victory against 

PacerGolfers in tournaments

Maginely-Trinder ended the second doubles 
nipping Gramatikis-Hollingsworth, 2-6, 3-2, and 
won on a default. 

March 16, Thursday will feature an exciting 
away match for the Pacers with Miami Dade South, 
a team which ranks comparitivel'y as well as the 
Pacers. Coach Faquir believes, "This game may 
help to qualify as to whether we go to nationals or 
not."

College at home tomorrow at 1:15 and Thursday 
with Miami Dade North also home at 1:15.

Reynolds, others removed 

Eisseybegins staff reorganization 




By Doug Hughes 
Editor 

At least five JC personnel have been notified of a pending change 
in their title and duties in the first of what president-elect Ed Eissey 
calls "many more changes." 

Dr. Howard Reynolds,. Dr. Marian McNeely, Charles McCreight, 
Robert Moss, and Elizabeth Davey have all been told that as of 
Eissey's July 1 inauguration they can all expect to be relieved of their 
present positions. All will be offered alternate positions in the Eissey 
administration but are being advised of the plans well in advance so 
that "those unhappy with the reorganization will be free to make 
application elsewhere," according to Eissey. 

Reynolds, athletic director (AD) and chairman of the physical 
education department, was told March 6 that he will no longer Jbe 
AD after July. Reynolds has held the two.posts jointly for nine years. 

Reynolds has expressed discontent over his lack of choice between 
which of the two positions he would chair, although he says that the 
separation of the duties is a "positive move." 

As AD he is in charge of sports competition between schools; as 
chairman of the PE department he is in charge of administering 
classes on campus. 

Eissey explained that the combination of duties in one man is very 
rare. 




" There is not one educational institution in the county where the 
same man serves in both capacities," he stated. "I plan to enlarge 
the PE program here with swimming and track, and Dr. Reynolds is 
theman Iwanti todoit." 

Eissey denied having a choice made for a new AD. 

"I am just begining to plan for the changes I want to make," he 

said. "All I am doing now is notifying people who will be involved so 

that if they're displeased with my changes they are free to take other 

offers." Reynolds would not comment as to whether he has applied to 

any other school. 

The role of the AD is involved in quite another change in the Eissey 
reorganization. Tentative plans for streamlining the college 
chain-of-command call for the AD, along with sponsors of clubs and 
organizations, student publications, and the director of intramurals to 
report to a yet unamed Dean of Student Activities. 

A. reliable source indicates that Robert Moss, -.assistant dean of 
students : men , is slated to take over that position after his positionis 
abolished in July. 

Davey, assistant dean of students-women, whose position likewise 
disappears, has been promised duty as a counselor. Davey, who has 
been a dean of women 14 years, said she thought the move was a 
"demotion" but was optimistic about the improved efficiency of the 
system. 

Beachcomber advisor Charles McCreight also expressed optimism 
about his release from that duty. Cont - page 3

SG executive board 



A presentation of mime, story-telling through 
techniques of illusion, body movements and 
gesture is to be given in the JC gymnasium April 
11. 

Beginning at 10:50 a.m. and continuing through 
12:20 p.m., the show is open to the public for a$3 
donation and all classes will be cancelled; 

"The assembly is part of a full-day mime 
residency to be presented by the Palisades Theater 
Company at St. Petersburg, Fla.," said Dean 
Elizabeth Davey, assembly committee chairman. 

Davey stressed that the morning and afternoon 
mime workshops, as well as an original 
presentation of the Taming of the Shrew, for 
English and drama majors are not open to the 
public. 

Four actors and a musician from the company 
will present the show, a series of vignettes created 



by the group through improvisation and "inspired 
by animals, vegetables, minerals and human 
foibles." said a prepared release. 

"The vignettes poke lighthearted fun at school, 
home, sports, modern t'echnolgy and the world of 
advertising. Different skits are performed for 
different groups, depending on the audience and 
their tastes," the release said. 

The four actors are Patricia Ficke, Henry Fonte, 
Douglas Hopkins and Antoinette Pineau, the 
musician is Thomas Minor. 

The presentation of The Taming of the Shrew, to 
be from 2-3 p.m. will feature a new adaptation. 
Music, song and dance and extensive use of 
puppets will highlight the program. 

Tickets for the presentation will be available at 
the gym box office the day of the show. 



Filing deadline for election nears 









"\vV •> *"■* "t 



By Patrick Heffeman 
Staff Writer 

Filing for positions in the 
executive branch of Student 
Government, begins April 6 
and continues through April 12 
according to Paul Simon, 
Secretary of Election s . 

Campaigning will run from 
April 13 to the 26, with April 19 
set aside as candidate day with 
speeches to be given on the 
north side of the cafeteria. 

All executive board offices are 
open in this year's April 25-26 
elections: president, vice-presi- 
dent, secretary and treasurer. 

"We are looking for 
people who think they 
are qualified" Paul 
Simon, Secretary of 
el ections 

Eligibility criteria for seeking 
the seats outlined in the SG 
Constitution include the follow- 
ing requirements: 

• Persons seeking executive 
office must have completed 12 
credit hours before applying for 
office. 

'• Possess both a cumulative 
and current grade point average 
of at least 2.2. 

• Maintain an academic load 
of 12 credit hours while in office. 

• Maintain a GPA of at Jeast 
2.0 each term in office. 

Filing forms can be picked up 



from 8:30 to 3:00 p.m. in the SG 
executive office or Dean Robert 
Moss's office, which are located 
in North SAC lounge. . 

In another SG matter, JC 
street signs are being realized 
although there is much dissent 
over it between the senate and 
executive board. 

Already approved at the 
March 15 Board of Trustees 
meeting was an SG project 
presented by SG Treasurer 
Cindy Haapanen to name 15 
street signs making a sizeable 
portion of JC to be on Eissey 
Street. 

The senate, which initially 
took on the project to name the 
streets, are in somewhat of an 
uproar over it with the (executive 
board because of the latter 
changing the name" without 
proper approval . 

But sources in the senate say 
the reason the executive branch 
added or deleted the names was 
due to a couple of administra- 
tors thinking the names by the 
senate were not adequate. 

Senator Sam Sasser said, 
"The executive board violated 
the constitution by naming the 
signs." 

President. Pro-tem of the 
senate, Victor Martinez stated, 
"They (executive board) have 
no. right whatsoever- to change 
anything we do. The executive 
board agreed on the idea but 
changed our names," he said. 

It was pointed out at the 
senate meeting that the only 



way for the executive board to 
make a proper change was for 
president to give a presidential 
veto and that was not used. 

SG President Sharon Christ- 
enbury explained the reason a 
presidential veto wasn't used 
was because "we have yet to 
receive legislation from the 
senate this year." 

With that Sasser blasted out 
to Christenbury that, "Anything 
we do in the senate is 
legislation." At that time a near 
debate was started on the 
definition legislation was in the 
senate. 

One member of the judiciary 
noted that on this project 
• Christenbury was under the 
impression that the role the 
senate was to take in naming the 
signs was "just to-help out." 

Chief Justice Robert Calamun- 
ci stated, "The only way to stop 
the signs now is to pass a bill 
saying the senate has the right 
totake on this project." 

Candidates must main 
tain a 2.0 grade point 
average and be full 
time students 

But" until further discrepan- 
cies in the SG Constitution can 
be interpreted, "It won't be 
established whether the legisla- 
tive branch is operating in a 
legal matter," stated Calamun- 
ci.

protection and a chance to 
forget and forgive the mons- 
trous program of that era. 

This is not a case of freedom 
of speech. Any such freedom 
ends when it becomes harmful 
to another.- None of us has the 
moral right to advocate harm to 
another, under the pretext of 
"free speech." 

Our government has right- 
fully spoken out for human 
rights in other countries. At 
home our judiciary system has 
chosen to turn its back on 
protecting Jewish rights. 

After much soul-searching, 
our society found that there 
should be no exceptions — all 
citizens should enjoy the fruits 
of our liberty. We must all be 
free of repression, bigotry, 
terror and equally protected 
under law. 

Free speech should not 
include the right to verbally 
abuse another. Our religious 
freedom should mean legal 
protection for all religions, and 
that includes the Jewish faith. 

Because of the peculiar role 



Nazi Germany assumed in the 
past; the Nazi party cannot be 
considered a benign organiza- 
tion deserving protection to 
spread its racial theories. There 
should be serious reservations 
aobut just how far we' should 
allow these new members to 
pursue their unholy goal. 

Surely the terrible atrocities 
committed by the German Nazis 
have not slipped from mind. 

The six million Jews killed by 
Aryan racists will always be 
remembered by those with a 
sensitivity to Mans' inhumanity 
to Man. 

To be confronted by a living, 
marching example of that 
inhumanity is more than- a 
"free" society (which still 
harobrs far too much racism) 
should ever be allowed to 
tolerate. 

Adolph Hitler was allowed to 
gain power through just such a 
source of legal freedom. Once is 
enough. It is time we remind our 
judges that equal protection of 
the law. should blanket all its 
law-abiding citizens, but only to 
the extent that they do not 
advocate any kind of harm to 
others.

Walkathon success

Art student cited 

A JC commercial and graphic arts student is one of seven statewide 
selected out of a field of 200 competitors to win a citation for 
excellence for pencil drawing. 

Twenty year old Luis Hernandez said, "I was surprised, I didn't 
know. ..now I feel like I have hope for the future as an artist.' ' 

A commercial arts major, Hernandez drew a picture entitled Lion: 
Many hear but only the wise listen, the theme for the national graphic 
arts competition sponsored by RKO radio out of Fort Lauderdale. 

Having an interest in art since he was 15 years old, Hernandez said 
it took him about six hours to compose the award winning drawing. 

"I worked at it from different angles until I finally got one I liked, " 
he said. 

Hernandez said that his entire Graphics II class was given an entry 
booklet but that he didn't know how many others at JC had entered 
the contest. 

The seven categories of competition include pencil drawings, ink 
drawings, pencil and ink combinations, painting and etching. 

The work is currently not in his possession though "I might be able 
to get it back," he said. 

Hernandez submitted the drawing in early December. 



With distance records set by 
previous contestants broken and 
a larger than usual crowd, this 
years fifth annual children's 
walkathon was even more 
successful than in the past. 

Early Learning club President 
Kay Davis attributed the 
increased success to greater 
publicity and the addition of a 
bake sale and flea market. The 
club sponsors the event. 

The large crowd wandered 
from table to table buying fruit, • 
fresh vegetables and nuts, as 
well as items from the flea 
market. 

Approximately three-hundred 
persons sponsored the 19 
participants, pledging large and 
small amounts, with proceeds 
destined for equipment and 
scholarships for the Early 
Learning Center. 

' ' We could raise from $300 to 
$400, but we don't know for sure 
until all the pledges come in," 
said Kathleen Bowser, director 
for the center. 

JC supplies 
five finalists 

Five JC students reached the 
finals at the Florida Junior 
College Forensics Champion- 
ships held at the Deland campus 
of Stetson University March 
16-18, according to Forensics 
advisor John Connolly. 

Among the five finalists were 
two trophy winners, Jack 
Pickney, who won first place in 
prose-poetry, interpretation, 
and Letti Obradovitch, who 
placed second in Expository 
speech. ,.'.'■ 

Pickney blended' two poems 
with a speech by the late Dr. 
.Martin Luthdr King. The 
selections, said Connolly, 
"showed the spiritual strength 
which has sustained the black 
culture from their African roots 
to the present." 

Derrick Spradley won third 
place in the Lincoln-Douglas 
debate. In this event, students 
had to argue one-on-one on a 
given topic, switching from 
opposition to agreement each 
round. 

Students Greg Kouns and 
Vicki Stark placed fourth and 
fifth respectively in humorous 
speech. They are the seventh 
and eighth JC students to 
qualify for the National 
Forensics Individual Events 
tournament in Monmouth, New 
Jersey, to be held later this 
month. 



"We're hoping that next 
year, more clubs will become 
involved in the Festival- Walka- 
thon — perhaps it could even be 
considered an assembly with the 
classes dismissed for the event 
— and then we could raise even 
more for the center, "she said. 

Taking place March 22 at the 
JC tennis courts, the all day 
event was highlighted by the 
youngsters who went the 
farthest. 

Three year old Brandon 
MacDermott and four year old 
Joey Schneider each completed 
15 laps, just a quarter-mile short 
of four miles. 

Joey is the son of < Joseph 
Schneider, JC personnel direct- 
or, Brandon is the son of a JC 
student who is vice president of 
the Early Learning club, Donna 
MacDermott. 

One youngster, five-year-old 
Randy Rodriguez, did 14 laps in 
such a hurry he was too tired to 
continue. 



"I have asked to be removed 
before," McCreight sxaid, "so I 
am pleased. I think, though, 
that with adequate release time 
and an assistant, such as many 
activities get, advising the 
'Comber Would be very 
palatable. ' ' 

McNeely, Director of Finan- 
cial Aid, has also been told that 
she will be promoted but has not 
received any word on what her 

'new duties will be. Eissey says 
he has not decided where "her 
talents can be best used." 

- "I don't know what all the 
noise is about," said Eissey, in 
reference to reports of a clean 
sweep of the old administration. 
"Tom Mills (district school 
superintendent) takes office and 
fires 17 people, and not one 
whine from the press. Ed Eissey 
will not fire one person, and I 
promise you that."

Most promising sweeteners 
are moneSlin, xylitol, aspartame 
and the dihydrochalcones from 
citrus peels. Monellin is a 
natural product, has almost no

Xylitol (in Orbit gum) is a 

sugar alcohol, natural substance 
from cellulose waste products. It 
has she same ealorie content as 

sugar, but is safe for teeth and

Aspartame is 120-180 times

dry foods and chewing gum. 

The dihydrochalcones come 
from Seville oranges, narangin 
from grapefruit and hesperidin 
from lemons and sweet oranges. 
They are slow to effect 
sweetness but have long-lasting 
effects, can mask perception of

Aggravation can ruin a day 



By Sonny Nyman 
Venture Columnist 

Isn't there anything more humbling 
than being embarrassed? 

How about getting aggravated? 
Combining the two, you get a potion 
powerful enough to send you flying and 
splattering into a shower of nerves all 
over the floor on the slippage "of 
someone's uncalled for smart remark. 
Don't let it happen. 

The process of being embarrassed is 
simple. Getting out of that unplanned 
situation is another story. Excuses make 
it only worse and the only real way to 
squeeze through the keyhole of 
humiliation is to go with the joke. After 
all, buddy, the joke's on you. 
• If you lack a minute if not less, check 
your footing before stepping UP onto a 
descending escalator. Their hypnotic 
movement proves to be quite an optical 
illusion. 

However, it's too late and you find 
yourself being whisked into a 
mannequin's general direction. 

Brushing yourself off politely, you 
begin to explain to the dummy, who you 
think is the manager, "I knew it was 
going down. I just wanted to see what 
would happen." 

Clerks and store managers find these 
situations very aggravating and also bad 
for business. 

Approaching you cautiously as you're 
still conversing with the stiff 
"manager," the manager points to the 
fashionably frozen figure which broke 
your fall and says, "See that' 
mannequin? He did that once." v 

Suddenly the whole world is watching 



and ABC, NBC and CBS are playing 
instant replays as your face turns, 
frankly, scarlet. 

Conclusion: One who continuously 
gets embarrassed either A. is clumsy B. 
likes 'to be embarrassed or C. likes 
mannequins. 

Actually, embarrassment is a 
learning process which one goes 
through to learn to do something the 
right way the next time. It's perfectly 
normal and should not lead to paranoia 
if the joke is taken the right way. 

Aggravation is just the opposite. 
There's nothing funny about constantly 
tripping over a new pair of jeans. 
However embarrassing, it's much more 
aggravating. 

True aggravation sets in when the 
neck muscles start tightening, the head 
and eyebrows go down as the eyes go 
up. Teeth meet teeth and grind steel. 
Those pearly whites gleam demeaningly 
beneath those wrinkled and flaring 
nostrils. 

Aggravation is having your editor 
staring over your shoulder as you write 
your column. 

' Being of moody persuasion, aggrava- 
tion can spoil studying for a sentence 
fragments exam. 

One student claimed that learning to 
break down sentences into individual 
parts was ruining his trust in his own 
writing. 

. "After all those years of learning to 
write a decent sentence," he says, "I 



get into college and what do they do to 
me? Where I used to only care only 
whether a sentence started with a 
capital letter and ended with a peitod, 
now I can't figure where the past 
participle goes . . .or the direct object. . .or 
the instransitive verb!" Obviously, this 
is a hopeless case of aggravation, 

Incidentally, that student is now 
majoring in Spanish and is now learning 
where to put accent marks. 

Absent mindedness is a chief form of 
aggravation. There's uniting vjorse 
than what, you had to write down, you 
couldn't remember to write down. It's 
usually too late once you do. 

At the end of the day when all is 
forgotten, forgiven and forsaken, you 
set all aggravations aside, lightly 
chuckle over a few embarrassments, 
now just history, and settle comfortably 
on the floor for a listen of those new 
records you bought up North. 

You set the needle down and get 
ready to drift off to musiflEud whfjn... 
' ' dzzzzzzzzzz . . .They all . ...up. . .or'd .... 
and all the ...bzzzzzt!" 

Oh, well, you can't have everything. 

Overall, embarrassment and aggra- 
vation are just those little misnomers of 
life that make it exciting. Without all 
that blushing, smirking and growling, 
what kind of a day would it be! Probably 
very quiet. 

Caution: the aforementionedsituations 
could make or break your day. There's 
no need to get aggravated ly always 
getting aggravated. Get emlarrassed. 
That way you'll have something to 
laugh about. 



Pilferers performances praised 



By Robin Plitt 
Venture Columnist 

In keeping with a long-standing 
tradition, another organization presents 
its yearly awards: 

The National Academy for Shoplifters 
pays tribute to prime pilferage with the 
Crammy awards. 

Competition for this honored award 
was very stiff this year with the 
continuation of the Irish conflict and the 
famous blackout in New York City. 

The academy went through great 
pains to narrow the number of 
contestants down to a final selection. 
The nomination committee spent three 
days aboard a highjacked ocean liner in 
deliberation before finally deciding 



upon the winners. 

Here are the catagories and the 
Crammy award recipients for each.- 

OUTSTANDING MALE PERFOR- 
MANCE: This award goes to Shelton 
Berkovich, a Boston College sophomore 
who spent his first two years in college 
stealing the necessary parts to assemble 
an atomic bomb. He is expected to do 
well in the International Arms Race. 

OUTSTANDING FEMALE PER- 
FORMER: Constance Halibut receives 
this year's award for lifting three 
derailed railroad cars near Nashville, ' 
Tenn. These cars were filled with 
chlorine. She is expected to have a 
whiter, brighter future. 

OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE

The players are still being held hostage 
until a ransom demand of Burt 
Reynolds, John Davidson andthe entire

By Kathy Cavanaugh 
Venture Editor 

Magic is no illusion for 27 
year old Mark Blount, As a 
professional magician and 1976 
champion of the Florida 
Magician's Association, he 
knows all the secrets. 

But getting to know all the 
tricks of the trade wasn't easy. 

"Persistence!" said the 
former JC student. "I read 
every book on magic that I could 
get my hands on." 

He belonged to the Interna- 
tional Brotherhood of Magicians 
(IBM) for a year before its 
members realized he was 
serious about becoming a 
magician. 

IBM serves as the magician's 
union. If any techniques of 
magic are exposed by any of its 
members, those members are 
ousted. 

Blount's assistant, Donna 
Evans, an honorary member of 
the union, cannot reveal any 
secrets either. 

However, Blount did reveal 
the key to magic. 

"It's all misdirection. You 
control the audience's vision as 
to what they see," Blount said. 

He misdirects their vision by 
having his assistant catch a hat 
or hold a dove while he makes 
his move for the next illusion in 
a split second. 

Blount experienced the honor, 
of performing at the national 
convention of the Society of 
Amercian Magicians (SAM) last 



year. Kikuchi of Japan, who is 
one of the greatest magicians in 
the world also performed. 

"I knew I couldn't fool these 
magicians, so I entertained 
them," said Blount. 

Blount explained that these 
famous magicians are "so slick 
with ' their misdirection that 
they're way above everybody 
else." 

But misdirection isn't the only 
phase of magic that causes 
magicians to foil spectators. 

The audience plays a very 
important role because that is 
where magic actually occurs, 
says Blount. 

"It all happens in your head. I 
go through the motions, but to 
me it's like doing an everyday 
thing - like writing," the dark 
haired "houdini" said. 

The age group of an audience 
affects the manner in which they 
respond to the illusions . " 

' 'Retired people are the best 
audiences I've ever performed 
before," said Blount. 

The reason for this is because 
older people have been 
, conditioned through their fife 
that things "can't just disap- 
pear." 

"But when they do," Blount, 
said, "They're so surprised." 

Young Children do not make 
very good audiences because 
they do not understand the 
principle of magic. _, 







MAGICIAN MARK BLOUNT saws his assistant, Donna Evans, in half. Blount was 1976 champion of the 
Florida Magician's Association. 



Blount entertains at parties 
and notices that "people ages 
15-25 aren't interested unless 
they're female. 

"Guys don't like something 
being put over on them... they 
don't like "appearing gullible," 
he said.
